        Poor Staff-to-Resident Ratio Leads to Inadequate Care

        Favorable Settlement

        Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates’ nursing home abuse and neglect attorney negotiated a favorable settlement with opposing counsel for our client who suffered injures after staying in a nursing home.

        • The Case

          The male nursing home resident sustained multiple pressure sores to his sacral area that became infected, malnutrition, respiratory distress and dehydration.

        • In Depth Look

          Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates’ nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys filed an institutional negligence claim against the facility, stating it had breached the State and Federal regulations for nursing homes.

          The defendant argued it had lawfully abided by all required standards. In response, Horwitz lawyers produced documentation of the facility’s cost reports for the five years up to and including the date of his client’s admission and subsequent injuries. Our injury attorneys were able to show, through analysis of the facility’s annual budget and the staff-to-resident ratio, that the administrator had failed to provide adequate staff that could respond to the needs of its residents.
