Home health aide drops patient fracturing leg
There is a crisis in quality home health care aides today. Agencies cannot attract enough competent aides to serve our growing elderly population. McCready Law has sued many home health care agencies for injuries sustained by their clients. Recently, the firm was retained by a woman who was dropped by the home health aide while transferring from her bed to her wheel chair.
Aides are trained on proper techniques to transfer patients from a wheel chair. The aide in this case did not use the proper technique and as a result, dropped our client onto the floor. As a result, our client sustained a fractured leg which required surgery. If you know someone who has been injured by a home health care aide, please contact McCready Law at 773-779-9885.
