Case Synopsis

Professional negligence complaints are distinct from elder abuse complaints, with only the former requiring an affidavit of merit attached to the complaint. Where the type of complaint is unclear in regard to professional negligence and elder abuse, courts must look to the substance of the complaint to determine the scope and assess whether attachment of an affidavit of merit is statutorily required.
