Must Read: CNN Report on Abuse in Nursing Homes

The decision to place a parent, grandparent, or other loved one in a nursing home or other care facility is often fraught with reasonable concerns. While on the one hand, the regular care, supervision, and medical attention is often more than you can personally provide, you also may fear that the staff may not give them the love and attention they deserve. Even worse than the fears of neglect are the fears of abuse at the hands of the people who are supposed to be helping your loved one.

In a new CNN investigation, the news outlet examines some real-life cases of abuse that have become horrifyingly common.

New Video FAQ: Why are elderly people more susceptible to injuries?

In a new video, New York City personal injury attorney John Blyth of Hach & Rose, LLP discusses reasons why elderly people are at a higher risk of sustaining injuries.

Reduced strength and reflexes combined with weakened bones means that an older person is more likely to fall down, and at an increased risk of suffering a serious injury if they do.

When nursing homes fail to take these amplified dangers into account, their patients may be hurt in completely preventable accidents. If your loved one sustained an injury while in the care of a nursing home, call the nursing home negligence lawyers of Hach & Rose, LLP at (212) 779-0057 to discuss the situation with an attorney.

New York appeals court rules in favor of elderly care transportation provider

The New York Supreme Court Appellate Division dismissed a personal injury lawsuit on Tuesday, December 6, against elderly care transportation provider Senior Care Emergency Medical Services and its associated entity, Senior Ride, ruling that the companies did not possess any reason to have knowledge that a driver employed with them would hurt a patient.

Reversing a lower court’s ruling, the appeals court nixed the lawsuit lodged by plaintiff Holly Shiebl, who claimed that a driver for Senior Care physically assaulted her in an elevator at New York Presbyterian Hospital, noting, “The affidavits of both managers from both companies and the personnel file established that, at most, the employee had been disciplined in the past for rudeness and verbal abuse toward clients, and the companies had no notice of any physically violent propensities.”

Senior Care made the argument that they did not actually employ the driver and that the driver was actually employed by Senior Ride; Senior Care also contended that they are a totally different company from Senior Ride.
