A Hudson Valley nursing home and their food delivery service company was held accountable for ignoring clear doctor’s orders to provide only soft food to a resident due to the resident's disability. We discovered during our lawsuit that the doctor’s orders were clearly given to both the nursing home and the food service company but neither had sufficient protocols and systems in place to ensure the doctor’s orders were in fact followed. Shockingly, our client was served a hard-boiled egg which caused her to choke to death. This was precisely what the doctor feared and was completely preventable. Our clients family brought this lawsuit to make sure this does not happen to other nursing home residents. They are satisfied that the $2,250,000 will awaken the nursing home administration and change their ways. The Elder Law Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Legal Team for this case included Andrew Finkelstein, Michael Feldman, and Mary Ellen Wright.
