Home Care Nurse Mishap Results In Brain Injury To Patient

Brain Injury Caused by Nursing Home MishapThere’s been a lot of internet chatter regarding the home-video of a quadriplegic British man who suffered a brain injury after his home care nurse shuts off the life-support system and is unable to switch it back on.  What makes this situation so tragic is that the man was so concerned about the poor care he was receiving that he had a video camera mounted in his room to document his care.

If anything, I hope this video serves as a reminder to all caregivers that they should be aware of how to care for their patients in cases of emergencies.  At the very least, all caregivers should be familiar with the medical equipment their patients use and know how to revive them in emergencies.

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
