Defective Bed Parts Causing Injuries

Injuries Caused by Defective Bed PartsA recent NPR radio program discusses bed rail safety in nursing homes.  The increased demand for hospital beds in nursing homes, hospitals, hospice programs, and in home use has resulted in a shortage of certain bed parts.  For example, mattresses may be improperly sized to the type of beds.  Using improperly sized mattresses may result in gaps between the end of the mattress and the bed rails.  The gaps allow patients to get wedges between the mattress and rail.  The entrapment may result in suffocation, falls, lacerations or even death.

Justia Lawyer Rating for Jonathan Rosenfeld

Client Reviews

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
