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.

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.
