Woman sues New Orleans medical care facility after injury
A woman living in New Orleans has filed a lawsuit claiming that the health care facility where she lives is not, in fact, qualified to operate as a health care provider according to the stipulations of the Louisiana Medical Malpractice Act. Her suit alleges that the facility and its staff are guilty of negligence in their medical care, following a painful incident that occurred last summer.
The plaintiff claims that in June of 2016, she was residing in the facility when her caretaker did not use proper care, which resulted in a series injury. According to the suit, a nurse aide did not use proper care while rolling the woman over from her back to her stomach, resulting in the woman falling off the bed and suffering a number of injuries.
