Elaine Waintrup, 91, was admitted to Rydal Park Nursing Home. She lived there for almost four years. During this time, she suffered multiple falls, sometimes falling more than once in the same day.
The injuries from the falls she suffered included facial and head lacerations and a nasal fracture that necessitated hospitalizations.
In addition, an investigation that was conducted after one of her falls led to an Adult Protective Services determination that Waintrup had been the subject of caregiver negligence.
