Testimony of Plaintiff Used Effectively To Overcome Documentation and Obtain an Order of Dismissal
In May 2019 Jessica George obtained an order of partial summary judgment in a case involving claims of a failure to prevent/treat decubitus ulcers in Supreme Court Bronx County. These matters are always challenging in that documentation often does not reflect the aggressive care given; through the testimony of the family, Jessica was able to support even in areas of care where documentation may have been lacking, the Hospital consistently provided skin maintenance. The only issue left for the jury was if this critically ill patient, whose care was limited by her co-morbidities, could be or was offered turning and positioning every 2 hours.
