As a participant in the fight against preventable hospital bed and bed side-rail entrapment deaths across the country, Rasansky Law Firm fought and achieved a seven figure settlement on behalf of a husband (of over 40 years) and three children of a physically impaired woman suffering from Alzheimer’s (who was primarily confined to her hospital bed).
The bed and side-rail manufacturer, distributor, and medical equipment supplier (which filled the prescription for the bed), all knew that this elderly woman possessed several known risk factors for entrapment death, yet failed to warn her or her family of the associated risks, and failed to take steps to design a safer hospital bed and side rail system.
While it is the hope of Rasansky Law Firm that hospital bed manufacturers and distributors will act responsibly and ensure that entrapments become ancient history, we will continue to fight against irresponsible manufacturers and distributors.
