Nursing Home Abuse

40 year old male who suffered from Sickle Cell Anemia, late stage renal failure and was a deaf-mute fell in a nursing home after pulling at his permacath which was used for his dialysis treatment. Our client, who had a history of infections at the area of the permacath site, had walked to the nursing station 2 hours before his fall apparently seeking help. Despite recognizing the danger of pulling at the permacath, the nursing home staff did not transfer him to the hospital; did not call for medical assistance; and did not place him on one to one supervision until he could be evaluated by a doctor. Approximately 2 hours later, he pulled out his permacath which caused him to blead from the carotid artery. He fell, hit his head, fractured his neck (apparently as a result of osteomyelitis in his cervical spine caused by the repeated infections in the permacath site and his physical ailments) and suffered a heart attack. Our client was taken the hospital where he was revived but now paralyzed. Thereafter, he developed pressure wounds on his sacrum and the back of his head. He passed away approximately four (4) months later.
