        Resident Was Not Treated for Respiratory Issues Soon Enough

        Recovered Favorable Settlement

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

        • The Case

          A female nursing home resident was taken to the ER for respiratory issues. When she was admitted to the ER, doctors diagnosed her with pneumonia and kidney failure. She also had pressure sores on her buttocks and back.

        • In Depth Look

          Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates’ nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys argued that the nursing staff neglected to respond to a resident’s medical needs, in violation of the Nursing Home Care Act. They further argued that the nurses violated the facility’s policies and this negligence hastened the death of their client.

          Our client resided at an Illinois nursing home for five years prior to her death. Her daughter visited her frequently and during one visit she noticed her mother’s breathing was heavy and slow. She asked the nurse if her mother could receive a chest examination by the doctor. The nurse ignored the request and our client was never seen by a doctor to examine her respiratory issues. Had shee been treated at the time her daughter first spoke to the nurse, our client likely would have survived.
