An 81-year-old woman fell from her wheelchair while staying at an assisted living facility and was admitted to the hospital for treatment. She was diagnosed with a fractured neck of the left humerus and transferred to a rehabilitation center for continuous rehabilitation.
While at the rehabilitation center, the victim developed a necrotic area to her left heel. After being discharged back to the assisted living facility with a treatment order for wound care, the pressure ulcer became severely infected and she was again admitted to the hospital for wound debridement.
As a result of her injuries and extensive pain, the victim became depressed and lost her appetite. The family hired Rasansky Law Firm to pursue a claim, and we eventually reached an agreement to settle for $590,000.00.
