Rebecca Callard acted for a 79 year old client, who received compensation of £35,000 after her husband died as a result of poor care provided to him in a residential care home. Our client’s husband had suffered from a stroke a number of years before the negligent care and as a result required daily care.  He attended the care home for a period of respite care and sustained a fall whilst being washed and dressed by the carers . It was found that an inadequate risk assessment had been carried out when he first arrived at the home and a specific falls plan should have been in place. As a result of the fall he sustained a fracture to his femur which required surgery. During his admission into hospital he contracted an infection. He sadly deteriorated shortly after the operation and passed away.
