When a nursing home chooses to understaff their facility, residents are often neglected. The nurse’s aides can only do so much and often residents are not moved often enough and they develop bed sores. That is exactly what happened to our 85-year-old client. Once her family discovered the neglect they called our office. We immediately investigated and our expert confirmed had there was adequate staffing to properly care for all of the residents, the bed sores would not have developed. After starting the lawsuit the nursing home agreed to settle the case for $200,000. The case was handled by Managing Attorney and Registered Nurse Mary Ellen Wright and Trial Attorney Michael Feldman.
