New York Nursing Home Faces Punitive Damages for Elder Abuse – Attorney Paul Dansker Educates Public About Nursing Home Patients

The New York Post recently reported that in December 2009, a Brooklyn nursing home was found guilty of negligence in the case of a patient who developed numerous bedsores while under the home’s care. The jury awarded the patient’s family close to $4 million for pain and suffering, plus an additional $15 million as punishment for trying to cover up the poor patient care. This case is the first to charge a nursing home with punitive damages.
