A skilled nursing facility administrator was needed to testify in a lawsuit that claimed a nursing home’s insufficient care had caused one of their patients to pass away. The patient, a woman with a history of post-polio syndrome and failed total hip arthroplasty, had originally come to her surgeon with complaints of extensive pain in her left hip. She was scheduled for a revision of her left hip’s total hip arthroplasty, and was discharged to a nursing facility after the procedure for additional therapy. However, her health steadily declined; she was noted to have small bowel obstruction, which quickly developed into a diagnosis of sepsis and hospital-acquired pneumonia. After less than two weeks in the nursing facility, a combination of sepsis and respiratory failure caused her to pass away, leaving the trial to question the care administered to her by the nursing officials.
