Clinical Nursing Case Studies:

Nursing Home Rehabilitation Stay Proves Terminal. Was Quality of Care Given An Issue?
Lloyd v. County of Du Page, 707 NE.2d 1252 - IL (1999)
Summary: Nursing homes are frequently a patient's destination for rehabilitation following surgery. Common conditions fitting this bill include large bone fractures, hip replacements and stroke. Following these acute episodes, the patients are too unstable to go home and not "sick" enough to have their hospital stays reimbursed by insurance companies. The purpose of admission to a nursing home is to help the patient regain lost function, strength and health. In this case, the patient would remain in the Nursing Home till her death of complications.

Elderly Patient Repeatedly Injured In Nursing Home "Accidents." Negligence, Coincidence or Abuse?
Brickey v. Concerned Care of Midwest Ince. 988 S.W. 2d 592 MO (1999)
Summary: As the elderly population continues to increase, more and more families are faced with the decision to place loved ones in nursing homes. When a family member is placed in a facility, a certain standard of care is expected. In this case, a resident was injured repeatedly while under their care. When the patient died a few days after being "dropped" the family sued.

    Nursing Homes Quality Assurance (Report to Congress), Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services:"In 1996, about 1.6 million people received care in approximately 16,800 nursing homes across the United States. As the largest single payer for this care, the Federal government is responsible for ensuring: (1) that the health and safety of one of the nation's most vulnerable populations are protected; and (2) that expenditures are prudent. Nursing home care has improved compared to the poor conditions dramatized in scandals during the 1950s and 1960s. In spite of this improvement, some experts and the public continue to feel that the typical nursing home is terrible. Ongoing press reports of questionable practices reinforce a widespread negative perception of the quality of nursing home care and underscore the importance of the Federal government's responsibilities."
