Garlo Ward, an Austin, Texas, law firm representing long-term health care providers, recently redesigned its Web site and launched its front page as a blog providing legal updates and news affecting the long-term health care industry.

The blog will discuss legal issues, such as how to deal with investigations of abuse and neglect in nursing homes, and breaking news such as the impact of Hurricane Katrina on long term care providers in Louisiana and neighboring states, said partner Jerri Lynn Ward.
