Nursing Home Patient Dumping. Is This A New Trend?

I was disgusted when I recently saw this news clip regarding a nursing home patient that was literally dumped at an emergency room.  Patient dumping is an illegal practice, yet seems to be occurring more frequently lately.

No doubt, patient dumping is about nursing homes desire to increase their profits as opposed to providing quality patient care.  My hunch is that if we were to look at all of the patients who were dumped by nursing homes, we would see that most (if not all) are Medicaid recipients  as opposed to Medicare or private pay patients.

Client Reviews

  • Having worked in the medical field, I appreciated the way that Mr. Rosenfeld and his staff approached my family’s situation. The combination of medical knowledge and legal expertise was indeed the winning combination for our case.
    ★★★★★
  • While nothing can change the way our mother was treated at a nursing facility, I do feel a sense of vindication that the facility was forced to pay for their treatment. I am certain that they would never have done had my attorneys not held their feet to the fire.
    ★★★★★
  • I was very nervous about initiating a claim against my mother’s nursing facility, but Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers took care of everything from getting the medical records to going to court. I felt like I had real advocates on my side. That meant a lot to me.
    ★★★★★
  • After a horrific episode at a nursing home, my sister and I spoke to a number of law firms. No one took the time to answer our questions and explain the legal process like Mr. Rosenfeld. He did a tremendous job on our case and I can see why he’s earned the praise he has from clients and peers.
    ★★★★★
  • I liked the fact that I could call the office and ask questions about the legal process at anytime. I could tell that my case was in good hands. I think that this was reflected in my father’s settlement was more than I anticipated the case ever being worth.
