In this tragic case of nursing home neglect, a 72 year-old bedridden man had been ordered by his doctor to have his bed rails raised. A head nurse at his facility, (who, we later discovered, was unlicensed to practice in the United States), noticed that our client’s bed was broken and that one of the sides lacked rails completely. Instead of fixing the bed, he simply shoved it against the wall next to the radiator. While our client was sleeping, he rolled onto the radiator and burned his legs so badly that decubitus ulcers formed. Eventually, his legs had to be amputated. Our thorough and comprehensive investigation resulted in a $1.7 million verdict for our client.
