Nursing Home Choking

Care plans generally include notes from medical doctors showing that certain residents need help with swallowing their food. In fact, some nursing homes get money for providing therapy to residents who have difficulty swallowing. Yet, those same nursing homes frequently forget to cut up food into manageable bites so that a resident can handle their food. These lapses in judgement are potentially compensable and should be evaluated by an attorney.

Historic settlements and verdicts range from $25,000 – nearly $150,000.
