Arbitration – Valid Agreement – Nursing Home – Resident’s Contract (access required)

THI of South Carolina at Columbia, LLC v. Wiggins Even though the now-deceased nursing home resident did not sign the contract with the nursing home, the contract was signed on the resident’s behalf by an immediate relative, and the resident’s care was the essential purpose of the contract. Thus, the resident was an intended third-party beneficiary of the contract, the resident was bound by the contract’s arbitration provision, and the arbitration provision remains binding on his estate.
