One of many, Anglin Law Firm Case Studies for Nursing Home Negligence. The Plaintiff, an elderly woman in her 70s, had been admitted to a long-term care facility after her surgery. She was in need of assistance when she was being transferred from the bed to a wheelchair. The surgery had caused limited strength and mobility to walk or stand on her own.
In this case study, Upon being admitted to the long term care and rehab facility, she was required to have a Care Plan. The plan stated that she must be lifted from the bed into the wheelchair with a “Transfer Board” for either moving her to a wheelchair or back to the bed. One day, staff had did not use the Transfer board and moved her using a “fireman’s carry”. Two staff members picked her up by her arms and legs and attempted to move her to the wheelchair. Upon moving her this way and not according to the Care Plan, they inadvertently hit her leg on the bed frame and she sustained a fracture. This represents a clear breach of both the express and implicit duties of care owed to the woman.
As Chris Anglin of Anglin Law Firm duly noted in the above case study, the case was settled outside of court, pre-suit, and the elderly woman was awarded a cash settlement. The nursing home’s insurance carrier settled based upon a demand package drafted by a Raleigh, North Carolina nursing home negligence attorney.
