Patient Falls and Dies Due to Negligence of Hospital Staff

After recovering from a stroke in a skilled nursing facility, 82-year old client was listed as a high risk for falls, and client's family signed an authorization that enabled caregivers to use physical restraints so as to prevent client from suffering a fall. However, during client's stay at the facility, these directions were ignored by hospital staff and employees and client frequently was moving from his bed without assistance. The client fell out of bed while in the hospital and hit his head, resulting in an acute subdural hematoma. Client ultimately lapsed into a coma and died a short time after. This case settled for $300,000.00.
