Ms. Doe, 93, suffered from dementia and lived at the Roe Care Center. Her condition necessitated that she receive extensive assistance with transfers to and from her recliner, including when she needed to use the bathroom.
When Ms. Doe called for assistance, two aides allegedly responded and used the recliner to raise her to a standing position. The aide then allegedly assisted Ms. Doe to the bathroom and brought her back to the recliner. She was left in a standing position. The aide did not assist Ms. Doe in getting back into her chair.
As a result, Ms. Doe fell and fractured her left leg, which required surgery. The procedure left Ms. Doe bedridden and completely immobile, which in turn led to the development of pressure sores.
