FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA – The daughter of a 60 year old man in Green Cove Springs Florida has retained McIver Brown Law Firm to pursue a high-profile nursing home abuse and neglect case on her family’s behalf.
The victim is a 60 year old male who was under the care of a Florida nursing home so that he could receive extra assistance following a stroke. Unfortunately, the individual was so badly neglected by the facility that a Stage IV bedsore was allowed to develop on his back. In large part, this life-threatening wound was due to the nursing home not providing proper wound care prevention measures. Specifically, medical records indicate that the patient was not regularly turned, was malnourished, and developed a blood infection that went untreated, all of which contributed to the pressure ulcer’s development.
The wound on his back finally progressed to such a stage that it became life threatening and has required a painful flap surgery in an attempt attempt to close the wound.
McIver Brown is representing the family in a lawsuit against the nursing home and its nurses for their negligent care in his case.
As an experienced nursing home abuse law firms handling cases in Florida, McIver Brown Law Firm is representing the family in their efforts to have the nursing home pay for the unnecessary surgery, as well as for the long-term damage their neglect has caused the victim. Additionally, the family hopes that in bringing this lawsuit, they can raise awareness about Florida nursing home neglect, as well as help prevent this sort of negligence from happening to other Floridians.
“Most Florida residents have no idea the extent of abuse and neglect taking place in some Florida nursing homes,” stated McIver Brown attorney Charles Brown.
“The fact that nobody is talking about how common this level of neglect is, how preventable these sorts of injuries are, and how they can lead to death, is allowing this sort of thing to go on. Once the public is more aware, this sort of abuse will stop happening.”
