We obtained a significant six-figure settlement on behalf of the estate of an elderly woman in a medical malpractice and neglect suit she filed against a doctor, hospital, and nursing home. The woman, a nursing home resident in her early 90s, was being treated by a doctor who worked not only at the nursing home, but at the local hospital the patient was sent to for treatment.
In addition to the inadequate care the woman received at the nursing home and hospital, the doctor, who worked at numerous facilities, failed to order proper care and treatment, and to appropriately supervise staff at the hospital. The patient’s festering bed sores got so infected that the woman’s leg had to be amputated.
The case against the doctor and the nursing home was settled and the case against the hospital is still pending.
