Diabetes must be regularly monitored and must not be neglected by nursing homes. Unfortunately, that is exactly what happened when our 81-year-old client was residing in a Brooklyn nursing home. The nursing home staff allowed our client to slip into a diabetic coma and she never recovered. Her children hired Jacoby & Meyers to hold the nursing home staff accountable for not properly monitoring their mom. After depositions, the case was settled for $500,000. The case was handled by Trial Attorney Levi Glick, Partner Mary Ellen Wright and Managing Partner Andrew Finkelstein.
