After being admitted to the hospital for injuries sustained from falling down the stairs in her own home, a 79 year old woman fell again, while at the hospital, and suffered a spinal fracture alleged nursing negligence. The woman was supposed to be classified as a very high fall risk due to a heart condition, yet hospital employees failed to complete a fall risk assessment, and she was not treated as such. The fracture has caused her significant lifestyle limitations, rendering her unable to return to her job as a part-time guidance counselor. Daniel M. Hodes of Hodes Milman, LLP represented the patient, winning her a $485,000 settlement.
