June 2015 defense Verdict

Sep 8th, 2015

In June of 2015, Todd Thompson and Ellie Davis recently obtained a defense verdict on behalf of a Louisville hospital.  Plaintiff in that case developed a wound on her wrist after being restrained for several days in the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital.  The patient underwent multiple debridement procedures on the wound before it eventually healed. Plaintiff's expert testified that the inattentiveness of the nursing staff to the patient's wrist restraints caused the wound. The Jefferson County jury returned a unanimous verdict in favor of the hospital and its nurses.
