We filed suit on behalf of an 84-year-old female, who was dropped by a nursing home aid that was attempting to transfer her to a wheelchair. The nursing home had categorized client as a 2 person transfer. Pursuant to state regulations the use of a gait belt was mandatory in performing a transfer. No gait belt was utilized in clients transfer and only one person rather than 2 participated in lifting her when she was dropped to the floor. Client sustained a femur fracture and required lengthy hospitalization. Surgery to repair clients fracture could not be performed due to osteopenia. Clients fracture eventually healed but the angulation of her injured leg was approximately 25 degrees out of kilter. (Confidential settlement)
