The Law Office of David Jamieson | Elder Abuse Lawyer

Malnourished and Dehydrated

Mrs. Smith was admitted to a nursing home for short-term rehabilitation after hip surgery.

Because of the nursing home’s failure to keep her clean and dry and provide pressure relief, she developed an infected bedsore on her coccyx. She developed a Pseudomonas urinary tract infection. She was malnourished and dehydrated throughout her residency and lost about 25% of her body weight.

Her death was caused by her infected bedsore, her urinary tract infection, and her malnutrition and dehydration.

Her family retained the Law Office of David M. Jamieson. Their case was resolved to her family’s satisfaction.
