Nursing Assistant Fractures Elderly Man’s Femur While Transferring Him to a Bed; Settled for $150,000
An 89-year old man who recently underwent a total hip repair was transferred to a skilled nursing facility post-surgery. While at this facility, a certified nursing assistant was attempting to transfer him to a bed when the plaintiff heard and felt a loud pop in his left femur. Shortly after, it was discovered that the plaintiff had sustained a fracture to his femur and was forced to undergo another surgery, resulting in a lengthy recovery period. Dan Hodes with Hodes Milman Liebeck, LLP represented the plaintiff, settling the case for $150,000.
