A woman’s condition worsens after nurses fail to respond to her alarm when she fell out of her hospital bed at night. The woman had checked into the hospital to undergo surgery to correct chronic back and neck problems, which left her on total disability. The night after her surgery, she slipped and fell while trying to get out of bed to use the restroom. Even though she pressed the alarm for help, no nurses showed up to assist her, and no fall was reported in the nurse’s notes. The nurse’s medical negligence caused the woman’s injury to worsen, and she had to receive surgery a couple days later, and again several months later, but despite the surgeon’s attempts, she remained in total disability, and was unable to return to work. Jeffrey A. Milman, of Hodes Milman represented the plaintiff, resulting in a $400,000 settlement.
