Attorneys received a defense verdict in an eight-day nursing home negligence trial

Attorneys received a defense verdict in an eight-day nursing home negligence trial in which plaintiff alleged that her husband was allowed to develop a pressure ulcer, malnutrition and dehydration while a resident at defendant's long term skilled nursing facility. Plaintiff claimed that the pressure ulcer led to the development of sepsis, which caused the decedent's death. The decedent was 83 years of age and had been working as the CEO of his own construction company prior to sustaining a second hip fracture that required him to become a resident at defendant's facility. It was defendant's position that the decedent had a peri-rectal abscess, not a decubitus ulcer and that the dehydration and malnourishment were the result of the decedent not eating and drinking. Defendant further argued that there was no evidence of sepsis and that the decedent's death was unrelated to the care provided at the nursing home. The jury returned a verdict in favor of the Defendant after one hour of deliberations.
