Notable Results In Nursing Home Abuse Cases

Many of our verdicts and settlements have been widely noted in the Delaware media, among them an unprecedented $13 million verdict in Bailey v. Beebe Hospital, a nursing home negligence case.

In Bailey v. Beebe Hospital, the plaintiff's mother was admitted to Beebe Medical Center and later to the hospital's wholly owned subsidiary, Lewes Convalescent Center. The mother, who suffered from Alzheimer's, walked into the convalescent center's freezer. Four hours later, she was found frozen to the floor. It took four staff members to pry her off. She survived, but suffered frostbite to her face, hands, fingers, feet and toes.
