$1,465,000 – Pressure Wounds (thought to be one of the largest settlements involving pressure sores in South Carolina)
I’m worried that a family member in a nursing home isn’t being treated right. What do I do?
When you entrust the care of a loved one to a nursing home, you expect them to be treated with dignity and respect. But what do you do when you have a suspicion that something just isn’t right?
Perhaps you have noticed:
Bedsores Infections Bruises Broken Bones Loss of Weight Wounds that do not heal
Don’t let them suffer in silence
Your first priority is to help your loved one get the compassionate treatment they deserve. But proving that abuse is happening behind closed doors can be a very daunting task.
Our attorneys can guide you through the process and hold nursing homes accountable for their neglect of your loved one.
Grady Jordan was lead attorney on a recent nursing home abuse case handled by Smith Jordan. The case settled for $1,465,000, after extensive litigation where the blatant abuse of the provider and the nursing staff was shown. The case involved a sacral pressure wound that was not even cared for by the professional staff. It caused not only severe pain to the patient, but became severely infected and ultimately resulted in the death of the patient. The problems that resulted from the pressure wound could have been avoided with proper care and monitoring.
