Nursing Home Abuse: Scalding Burn Injury Case

Comments (0)

When you talk to the aging population about their biggest fears in the aging process, it seems like many fear being placed into nursing homes when they can no longer care for themselves and it becomes too hard on their families to do the same.  Family members also have signfiicant fears that their loved ones will not be properly cared for and may even be abused in the nrusing facility.  All too often, we hear of instances when in fact this nightmare actually becomes reality. 

A recent case in San Mateo, California just settled for a woman senior citizen who suffered scalding burn injuries while she was seated in a shower with the temperature set at 145 degrees.  The patient suffered third degree burns over sixty percent of her body.  Incredibly, the nursing home disputed liability until just before jury selection, when they finally anted up and settled the case.
