CG&P Obtains Dismissal Of Nursing Home Negligence Claims

Category: Medical Malpractice | Nursing Home Liability | Tags: nursing home, medical malpractice, summary judgment

In an action alleging negligence, medical malpractice, statutory violations of New York State Public Health Law §2801-d, CG&P was awarded summary judgment dismissing all claims against its client, a Long Island nursing home and rehabilitation facility. The decedent developed a pressure ulcer to his heel which progressed to Stage IV, became infected, and required multiple surgical debridements and local wound care for 3 years. The Court found that CG&P successfully established that the heel ulcer developed as a result of the decedent’s advanced peripheral vascular disease in the context of his co-morbidities, and not as a result of any care or inadequate care on the part of the nursing facility. This was supported by the diagnostic testing that showed occlusive arterial disease and an unsuccessful revascularization procedure. The case was handled by CG&P Partner Michele R. Levin and Associate Renton Persaud.
