Plaintiff v. Orange County Nursing Home- Nursing Home Neglect and Elder Abuse: Bed Sore Injury

Settlement: 1 Million Dollars

Case Details: A lucrative nursing home in Orange County decided to save money by short-staffing its facility. This is, unfortunately, a very common practice because nursing homes make more money by hiring fewer nurses than needed to provide appropriate care. Patients are then left in their own feces and urine for hours at a time. These patients frequently develop bedsores and other humiliating and painful injuries because they aren't helped.

91-year-old Plaintiff. ended up in the emergency room septic, with bedsore, a 102-degree fever, and a soiled diaper. She had been essentially forgotten about and left to die. Then, adding insult to injury, the nursing staff "backdated" their notes writing that they had recently bathed her and she had rolled herself in a wheelchair to the cafeteria smiling and laughing.

For two years the nursing facility refused to accept responsibility, only offering a $30,00 nuisance value to make the lawsuit go away. The family and Case Barnett Law refused to accept this. Like the Plaintiff., they are fighters. Case Barnett Law took more than 20 depositions and engaged in vigorous discovery to prove that the nursing home had neglected this beautiful woman. As part of the resolution, the facility must pay $1,000,000 to the family of Plaintiff and was forced to make changes in order to prevent this from happening to anyone else ever again.
