$393,750 settlement in a Camden County, New Jersey nursing home case where a woman suffered multiple falls because the facility failed to perform proper assessments and implement basic fall precautions. One of the falls resulted in a fractured knee that went undiagnosed for several days due to negligent treatment and care. Due to facility’s failure to evaluate the injury and subsequent delay in diagnosis and treatment, the woman’s physical condition declined and she was hospitalized due to poor intake, dehydration and hypotension. When the injury was finally diagnosed at the hospital, she underwent surgery but was too weak to return to baseline and died shortly thereafter. She was only 79 years old at the time of her death.
$350,000 settlement for the family of a 90-year-old woman who fractured her leg after being improperly transferred for a bath by staff at a long term care facility. Despite specific instructions listed in the woman’s care plan requiring her to be transferred with a Hoyer lift, she was transferred manually by an aide and an untrained janitor from the housekeeping department at the facility. The woman ultimately suffered a femur fracture during the transfer which was not promptly diagnosed or treated. The woman’s broken leg caused her tremendous pain and increasing immobility. She died four months later from unrelated causes.
