Inadequate Nursing Care

Tommy Hastings handled this medical malpractice case. The Plaintiff underwent heart surgery at a prominent Houston hospital. Following the surgery, the Plaintiff developed a large bedsore on her sacrum. The nursing staff admitted that it failed to follow standard procedures to prevent bedsores. One nurse even admitted that she was unaware the hospital had such procedures even though she had been working on the same floor for over 20 years. As a result of the lawsuit, she is now aware of those procedures. The case settled before trial for a confidential amount.
