Elder Abuse Neglect
Our client, who was in very poor health and who needed a lot of attention, entered a nursing home with mild pressure ulcers to his heels and buttocks. The nursing home didn’t provide him with the level of care he needed, which resulted in the wounds mildly worsening. He also suffered a urinary tract infection and dehydration. The nursing home argued that his conditions were present when he entered the facility and that they only worsened under their watch because he was in the process of dying. The nursing home settled anyway.
