/ Portfolio / John Doe v. Anonymous Care Facility, Riverside County, California.
In this case our middle-aged client was sent to a nursing home to recover from back surgery. The nursing home was so understaffed, however, that he did not receive his therapy and often did not his medications or meals. Instead of getting better, he got worse, until eventually he could not even turn himself in the bed. This, of course, led to the development of a bedsore. After getting out of this nursing home, he completely healed from the bedsore but his surgery outcome suffered from not getting his therapy post-surgery. The case settled confidentially for $450,000.00
