        Resident Suffers Aspiration and Dehydration, Dies as a Result

        Recovered Favorable Settlement

        Injury attorneys at Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates negotiated a favorable settlement incurred in favor of their client.

        • The Case

          A nursing home resident suffered from bed sores after lying in a soiled bed for an extended period of time without being turned. She died from dehydration and aspiration. She had been diagnosed with food in her lungs, a urinary tract infection, a collapsed lung, and digestive infections. Her legs, arms, and hands had swelled from her infections, which went unchecked for weeks.

        • In Depth Look

          Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates’ nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys filed a negligence claim against the nursing home. The nursing home denied claims that it had breached its duty of care to the resident. It filed a motion to dismiss the claims alleged.

          Injury attorneys at Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates provided documentation that showed the staff had repeatedly failed to carry out the plan of care for their client and failed to follow physician orders. By breaching its standard of care, the nursing home was negligent and should be held liable for the resident’s death.
