Lawsuit Filed Against New York Nursing Home In Relation To Nun’s Death

Nun’s Death in Nursing HomeThe family of a 90-year-old nun who died from complications related to a fractured skull has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Summit Park Hospital and Nursing Care Center.  The New York nursing home allegedly failed to secure unsteady dressers, within residents rooms, to the wall.  Apparently, when the nun attempted to get some belongings from the dresser, the furniture collapsed on her.  The nursing home became aware of dangerous problems with the dressers when a similar incident occurred within weeks prior to the nuns death.

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
