A Dutchess County nursing home was understaffed. As a result, the residents’ medical needs were neglected. Our client was a resident of the nursing home because her dementia became too much for her children to care for her. The nursing home failed to make sure she was properly hydrated and delayed getting her to the hospital. After obtaining the nursing home records, our experts were able to show how the nursing home failed to properly care for their residents due to being short staffed. The case was ultimately settled for $205,000. Partner Mary Ellen Wright handled the case.
