Shirley K. Arnold, as Administratrix of the Estate of Edward J. Arnold, deceased vs. Whitestone Healthcare Group, LLC d/b/a Whitestone Care Center, Saber Healthcare Group, LLC and Saber Healthcare Holdings, LLC - Pennsylanvia

Attorneys at Reddick Moss represented Shirley Arnold, the wife of Edward Arnold and the Administratrix of his estate.  Edward Arnold was a 70 year-old resident at Whitestone Care Center (“Whitestone”) from April 2, 2014 until his discharge on April 22, 2014.  While a resident, Mr. Arnold was subjected to terrible nursing home conditions caused by short staffing which led to his pain and suffering.  Mr. Arnold suffered from a fractured hip after being left in his wheelchair for 45 minutes following his third dialysis treatment of the week.  Testimony revealed that, although the Defendants knew he was a fall risk and suffered from a condition that could cause him to spontaneously loss consciousness, they left him alone in his wheelchair to go get a lift to put him in bed.  The Defendants had failed to care plan for his condition and failed to provide him with any chair alarm.  He passed out and fell out of the wheelchair which caused a hip fracture in his right leg.  Former caregivers of Mr. Arnold testified about the chronic understaffing at Whitestone and that the Defendants ignored the complaints.  The jury also heard about Defendants knowledge of repeat citations by the Department of Health following visits to Whitestone prior to Mr. Arnold’s residency.  The jury awarded $250,000.00 in non-economic damages for pain and suffering and $750,000.00 in punitive damages.  The Defendants were represented by Marshall Dennehy Warner Coleman & Goggin in Allentown, PA
