Attorney Peter Kelley secures defense verdict for Registered Nurse and Hospital

November 9, 2018 - Categories: Firm News

Plaintiff brought this wrongful death claim alleging the nurse failed to recognize and respond to the patient’s change in condition and failed to activate a bed alarm and contact a physician to report the change. Further, the Plaintiff claimed the failures resulted in the patient getting out of bed undetected, falling, and suffering a subdural hematoma that resulted in death. The patient was survived by his wife and four children.

The jury returned its verdict finding no negligence by the nurse following a brief deliberation.
