CG&P has secured the dismissal of an action alleging nursing home negligence and violation of resident rights under Public Health Law § 2801-d. The plaintiff sought damages for development and progression of Stage IV pressure ulcers leading to sepsis and death. CG&P aggressively moved for dismissal based upon the sufficiency of the pleadings and plaintiff’s lack of capacity. The Court agreed with CG&P’s arguments and dismissed the action without requiring discovery proceedings. The case was handled by CG&P Partner James P. Connors and Associate Katherine Giovacco.
