Jane Doe v. Anonymous Nursing Home, Ventura County, California

Case Description

A local nursing home was short-staffed at night. Mr. Johnson’s client got up to use the restroom after getting no response to the “call bell”. Although she was a known wandering and fall risk, and was supposed to be monitored with a “Tabs Alarm,” it was not used. Extensive discovery revealed the staff had no idea how to properly use the Tabs Alarm the doctor ordered. The client fell and suffered a head injury and loss of vision to one eye. She died several months later. The case settled confidentially for $620,000.00
