Disoriented Patient Falls and Breaks Hip

Our client, an 81-year-old woman was  admitted to a nursing home to recuperate following surgery. When she was  admitted, she was disoriented, and hallucinating about ice skaters  outside the facility's window.

Over the hours that followed, she  told the nursing staff that she saw smoke, cats, and "bad men" in her  room. Despite these hallucinations, they left her alone and unsupervised  in her bed. In the early morning the day after her arrival, the staff  found her on the floor of her room, with a severe fracture of her hip.

We investigated the case, filed a lawsuit, and obtained a substantial six-figure settlement.
