Lawsuit Filed after Nursing Home Aide Leaves Man Unattended, Suffering Broken Neck
Although nurses aides were aware that Matthew Ambrose suffered from Alzheimer’s, wasn’t allowed to be unattended and had difficulties with balance, he was left sitting on the edge of his bed, the morning of Sept. 12, 2011.
The aide left Ambrose alone to get something that would help lift him from the bed into his wheelchair. By the time the aide returned, he was lying on the floor with a broken neck. The injury resulted in surgery where his neck had to be stabilized by a metal screw.
