Elder Advocates Worry About Massachusetts Assisted Living Residents

According to elder advocates, the state’s Executive Office of Elder Affairs, which oversees some 224 facilities, is not properly equipped to protect Massachusetts assisted living residents, who are too often at risk of getting hurt. The Boston Globe reports that assisted living residences in the state are not as tightly regulated as nursing homes. However, many elderly persons—about 13,700 people—are choosing this housing alternative because it is less expensive than the cost of living in a nursing home.

Typically assisted living residents are elderly adults who need help cooking, bathing, or with other daily tasks but can otherwise live independently. Yet because of not enough supervision and inadequate staffing, this type of living situation ultimately could prove more hurtful than helpful.

The Globe says that about 100 incidents in assisted living facilities, including those involving elder abuse and deadly falls, are reported to the Elder Affairs office every week. Some recent incidents include a Stoughton fall accident involving a dementia patient who wandered into a room and fell out of a window on the second floor, a Framingham elder abuse case involving two staffers that allegedly assaulted two Alzheimer patients and filmed a third resident that wasn’t full clothed, and a Revere trip and fall accident involving a man who fell in the bathroom and bled to death before help finally arrived.

While the state doesn’t mandate minimum staffing levels in Massachusetts assisted living facilities, new employees must undergo at least seven hours of orientation and 10 hours of training every year—this also applies to the assisted living residencies with special care units for dementia patients. The state has not revised its assisted living rules in nearly a decade. There has also been a decline in the percentage of residents that are moved to Massachusetts nursing homes even though the need this more concentrated type of care.

It is unfortunate that Boston elder care abuse continues to be a problem in both Massachusetts nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Unfortunately, many of these residents may be too frail or impaired or sick to report the incidents when they happen. Depending on their health issues they also might be more prone to injury or illness caused by abuse and negligence.

Types of Massachusetts elder abuse:

• Physical abuse, including inappropriate disciplinary measures to get elderly residents to “behave”
• Verbal abuse, including intimidation, threats, yelling, ridicule, bullying, harassment, or ridicule
• Psychological abuse
• Emotional abuse
• Sexual abuse and assault
• Elder neglect
• Negligent care
• Financial exploitation

You want to speak with a Boston elder abuse lawyer to explore your legal options. Assisted living facility residents and nursing home patients may have grounds for a Massachusetts nursing negligence case against the facility and those directly responsible for the abuse or neglect.

If you suspect that your loved one is the victim of abuse or neglect you should remove him/her from the facility right away and notify the authorities. Your first case consultation with Altman & Altman LLP, our Boston nursing home abuse law firm, is free.

$1.25 Million Verdict Awarded to Man Who Cut Off Fingers with Unsafe Table Saw

An Illinois woodworker was awarded a $1.25 million jury verdict after he was severely injured while using a defective Ryobi table saw.

Brandon Stollings, 30, lost his index finger and parts of his two other fingers when his Ryobi saw unexpectedly experienced a kickback—which occurs when a piece of wood pinches a table saw blade and forces it back toward the operator. The incident occurred in 2007 while Stollings was doing work for his mother and stepfather at their home while using the Ryobi Model BTS20R table saw. According to court documents, Stollings was injured as he fed laminate flooring through the saw, and the wood kicked back, pulling Stolling’s hand directly into the blade. Stolling’s injury and case is just one of hundreds of cases involving defective table saws throughout the country.

Stollings trial apparently lasted two weeks, whereby the table saw’s design was called into question. Former Ryobi chief engineer David Peot said that the simple addition of a piece of curved metal, called a riving knife, could eliminate all kickbacks. Yet, despite this fix Ryobi and most other table saw manufacturers did not equip their saws with riving knives until 2010. According to the National Trial Lawyers, most saws included a fixed splitter and an unwieldy and seldom-used blade guard that restricted visibility of the blade. It had to be removed for many types of cuts and was difficult and time-consuming to remove and reinstall.

Ford Recalls 850,000 Vehicles For Air-Bag Issue

Ford Motor Co. recalled nearly 850,000 vehicles, including two of its most popular models, last week over concerns that an electrical glitch could cause the vehicle’s air bags to malfunction during an accident.

According to reports by the Wall Street Journal, the Michigan automaker recalled 2013 and 2014 model year Ford sedans, Escape crossovers, C-Max hybrids and the Lincoln MKZ luxury cards sold in North America, Canada and Mexico. The reasoning behind the recall was that the vehicle’s restraint control module has the potential to disable both front and side curtain airbags during a crash, which ultimately would increase the risk for injury for passengers. The shortage would illuminate the vehicle’s air bag warning light. The company stated that at the present time, it is unaware of any accidents that have been caused by the suspected malfunction.

Two Killed In Cape Cod Skydiving Accident

Two men were tragically killed on Sunday afternoon while doing a tandem skydive at a Cape Cod Airfield in Marstons Mills.

The maneuver, which is generally considered very safe, involves an experienced skydiving instructor strapped behind a novice skydiving student. Together the pair will jump from an aircraft and descend under a large parachute.

On Sunday, around 5 p.m., this routine jump turned horribly wrong when the men performing the maneuver missed their landing spot on the airfield and crashed into a shed in the backyard of a residence across the street. The student, a 29-year-old from Nantucket, and the instructor, 48, of West Lynnwood, Washington, suffered fatal injuries during the fall.

The cause of the accident has been attributed to complications with the parachute. According to reports by the Boston Globe, the student’s friend, who had also jumped, said witnesses told her that the pair’s parachute had in fact opened, but had become tangled. Officials believe the pair eventually lost control before hitting the shed. The woman also reported that while up to altitude, “both instructors were complaining how this was their 16th jump of the day, and both of them were saying they were tired but had two more to go,” according to The Boston Globe.

Investigators are hoping that some footage shot from the sports camera of one of the men will provide some evidence as to exactly what happened. D.A. for the Cape & Islands Michael O’Keefe said he believes that this was just a tragic accident. The FAA is currently in the process of leading the investigation to determine how the jumpers veered off course and crashed.

Framingham, MA Wrongful Death Case Seeks Damage Over Inmate’s Fatal Drug Overdose

The estate of Monique Miller is suing the Middlesex County Sheriff's Department, unnamed deputies, and a corrections officer for her Framingham, MA wrongful death. Miller, a 42-year-old woman with five children, died of a drug overdose while at the MCI-Framingham correctional facility. She was imprisoned over drug and shoplifting charges.

According to her family, Miller snorted heroin while in custody. She was then allowed to remain facedown on the floor of her cell for hours even though she obviously needed medical help. The plaintiffs are accusing corrections officer Nancy Padvaiskas and the other defendants of “deliberate indifference” and violating the prohibition related to unusual and cruel punishment. Their Massachusetts wrongful death case also accuses the sheriff’s deputies of not supervising the prisoners under their care, failing to stop drug use by inmates, and not noticing that there were inmates under the influence of drugs.

During transport for a court appearance last year, Miller and other prisoners snorted heroin while in Cambridge. The drug came from another prisoner, who was also concealing the sedative Seroquel.

Surveillance footage captured Miller taking heroin. Other inmates have since admitted to snorting the drug too while in custody. A prisoner even had to go to the infirmary for drug use.

It was Padvaiskas’s job to make the rounds that night. She reportedly saw Miller facedown on the floor yet did not enter the cell. It would be more than four hours before she finally asked Miller’s cellmate to wake the prisoner, who was found unresponsive. According to autopsy results, Miller passed away from acute intoxication from taking opiates, nortriptyline, and amitriptyline.

Massachusetts Police Brutality and Negligence
Law enforcement officers, including those tasked with supervising inmates, have a duty to protect prisoners from injury. When failure to adequately monitor prisoners causes injury or illness to occur, or creates an atmosphere were injury or death can happen, the inmate or his/her family may have reason to pursue a Boston injury case. Also, police, deputies, corrections officers are not allowed to exert excessive or unnecessary force when dealing with prisoners or civilians. That kind of misconduct could lead to a Massachusetts police brutality case.

SEC Pays Over $30M Whistleblower Award in Securities Fraud Case to Informant Living Abroad

The Securities and Exchange Commission said it expects to pay over $30 million to a whistleblower. This is the largest SEC whistleblower award issued under the whistleblower program, which was established under the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act. The agency is keeping the specifics of the case under wraps. However, the regulator acknowledged that the recipient is someone who lives outside the United States.

Under the program, the SEC may give the whistleblower 10 - 30% of the award collected if the information provided was original and substantial enough that it led to the enforcement action and resulted in sanctions of over $1 million.

To date the SEC has issued awards to approximately 15 informations. This informant is the fourth one located overseas.

SEC whistleblower chief Sean McKessy said that this latest award demonstrates the “international breadth” of the program and shows that the agency welcomes tips from “anyone, anywhere,” in its efforts to hold wrongdoers accountable and fight for justice. McKessy noted that people around the globe should see this latest award as incentive to report credible information about possible violations of U.S. securities laws.

The largest SEC whistleblower award prior to this one was $14 million. It involved a Chicago-based scam to bilk foreigners hoping to obtain U.S. residency. Anshoo R. Sethi and two Illinois companies are accused of defrauding 250 investors, mostly from China, of more than $155 million.

The investors thought the U.S.-based venture would qualify them for an immigration program that grants people residency for helping create jobs with their investments. At $14 million, the SEC gave the whistleblower 10% of the $147 million that was recovered for investors.

At Altman & Altman LLP our Massachusetts SEC whistleblower lawyers are here to help individuals bring a whistleblower case against a financial institution or another entity that has bilked the government. To receive part of the recovery, you have to be among, if not the first to come forward with the information exposing the fraud. The sooner you begin exploring your legal options the better.

Our Boston Qui Tam lawyers know that coming forward to report securities fraud or any other fraud against the government can be an intimidating endeavor. Contact Altman & Altman LLP today for your free case consultation.

Fraternity Under Investigation For Alleged “Date Rape” Drugs at Party

Tau Kappa Epsilon, a fraternity at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, is under investigation over allegations that some of its members inserted date rape drugs into the beverages of party attendees. According to police, several of the girls who attended the festivities had trouble standing or walking and experienced lapses in memory afterwards. Two of them had to go to the hospital. All of them had a red X on one of their hands, which was drawn on them while they were at the party.

Putting the drug Rohypnol, also known as a roofie, into someone ‘s drink has become a means of incapacitating someone prior to sexual assault. According to the search warrant affidavit, one of the women accused the fraternity of also trying to roofie women at another party the night before. Others said that on Friday, cups were placed below the bar while the drinks were made. Tau Kappa Epsilon’s chapter at the university has been suspended pending the investigation’s findings.

This is the same fraternity that last year was investigated over allegations involving three sexual assaults. No charges were filed in those probes.

Unfortunately, sexual crimes continue to happen on college campuses. If you or someone you love was the victim of a campus crime, you may have reason to pursue a Boston sex assault case or a Massachusetts premises liability claim against the responsibility parties, as well as those that could (or should) have prevented the crime from happening.

This morning, the White House launched the “It’s on Us” campaign. It’s an initiative to end sexual assault on campuses. About one in five women are sexually assaulted while in college. There are also male sex assault victims.

Colleges and their campus organizations are under pressure to reassess their handling of sex crimes so that perpetrators don’t get off so easily and victims are supported and protected. Just today, a former Southern Methodist University student sued the college because school officials allegedly created a “hostile dangerous” setting after he reported that he was sexually assaulted on school grounds in 2012. John David Mahaffey was charged but then the case was dismissed. The plaintiff says that Mahaffey threatened to use his influence as a descendent of one of the founders of the school to revoke the victim's scholarship.

Also this month, another man sued Penn State for not properly reporting abuse incidents involving former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky. He claims that better handling of these cases might have prevented his own child sex abuse by Sandusky. The former coach was found guilty on 45 counts of abusing ten boys. Some of the sex crimes happened on the campus.

In July, the University of Connecticut settled with past and current students for almost $1.3 million a federal lawsuit accusing the school of mishandling sex assault and harassment allegations.

Man Expected to File Medical Malpractice, Wrongful Death Case After Wife, Twins Die During Childbirth

A man whose common-law wife and twin daughters died during their delivery says he intends to sue the doctors involved for birthing malpractice. Tafari Brathwaite says they tried to deliver the babies naturally even though Victoria Rexach told them she needed a C-section.

At the time of the delivery, Rexach, 30, was 5 ½ months pregnant with the girls. The three of them died on August 28, 2014.

Rexach previously had two cesarean sections. Her doctor, a high-risk specialist, had said she should have the procedure again this time around. However, when Rexach went into labor prematurely, doctors at Richmond University Medical Center chose natural childbirth even though, contends her family, the hospital knew that she couldn’t deliver naturally. The believe Rexach would still be alive today if they had performed the surgery.

Cesarean Section
Sometimes, performing an unplanned C-section can make a huge difference for an infant and its mother, especially during an emergency situation.

Reasons for a C-Section:
• Delayed labor
• Signs of distress from the mother or baby
• The umbilical cord is wrapped around the baby’s neck
• The mother has an infection that could be contracted by the infant
• Fetopelvic disproportion
• Maternal disorders
• The mother has had a previous C-section and her doctor believes it is better for her to have another one
• Tumor in the pelvis
• The baby is still in a head down position and its almost time for the delivery date
• There is more than one baby in the womb
• The mother is too weak to undergo natural childbirth

Then there are the C-sections that are performed but were not necessary. These can result in complications or injuries to the mother or child that could otherwise have been avoided.

C-Section Malpractice
Failure to perform a C-section when needed and performing an unnecessary cesarean delivery may both be grounds for cesarean delivery medical malpractice if serious and avoidable injuries resulted and negligence or carelessness by a medical professional was a factor. In Massachusetts, contact our Birthing malpractice lawyers at Altman & Altman LLP today.

Massachusetts Man Killed in Golf Cart Accident At Maine Golf Course

A Massachusetts man was fatally injured last week in a tragic golf cart accident at a South Berwick, Maine golf course.

According to police reports and the Associated Press, the victim, who’d been playing at The Links at Outlook, was riding as a passenger in a golf cart when the driver lost control on a downhill portion of the cart path near the 14th hole. Both the driver and the victim were ejected from the cart; the cart then fell on and crushed the victim’s head. The driver received only minor injuries.

The victim is described as a 27-year-old male from Massachusetts. His name, nor were any other details about the accident, was not released. South Berwick Police Chief Dana Lajoie stated that blood was drawn at the scene from both the driver and victim to determine the men’s blood alcohol content.

Assuming that alcohol was a factor in this horrific accident, this situation could fall under the dram shop statute and liquor server liability law. According to Massacusetts General Laws, Chapter 231, Section 85T:

“In any action for personal injuries, property damage or consequential damages caused by or arising out of the negligent serving of alcohol to an intoxicated person by a licensee properly licensed under chapter 138 or by a person or entity serving alcohol as an incident of its business but for which no license is required, no such intoxicated person who causes injuries to himself, may maintain an action against the said licensee or person or entity in the absence of wilful, wanton, or reckless conduct on the part of the licensee or such person or entity.”

Will the Number of Massachusetts Car Crash Deaths Go Up if Selling Marijuana Become Legal?

With Massachusetts and other states seeking to join Washington and Colorado in legalizing the retail sales of marijuana for recreational purposes, safety advocates are worried that this could increase the number of traffic crash fatalities that happen. While it remains illegal everywhere in the country to drive while under the influence of pot, that doesn’t mean that people don’t do it—especially if it becomes more easily accessible.

According to studies, marijuana can interfere with multitasking, impair decision-making, and reduce peripheral vision, which are skills necessary for safe driving. However, unlike drunk drivers, motorists that are stoned tend to realize that they are impaired and may try to be more careful when behind the steering wheel. Still, like alcohol, marijuana seems to make a user more careless. Also, the more inexperienced a pot smoker is, the more likely he/she is to become impaired because no tolerance level has been built up.

Young adult males and teen boys are the groups most likely to smoke pot and then drive. They are also the ones most at risk of becoming involved in a traffic crash when under its influence.

In 2007, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration conducted a roadside survey in which 8.6% of motorists tested positive for THC, which is the psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana. According to Columbia University researchers that compared drivers who tested positive for pot in NHTSA’s roadside survey with the drug and alcohol tests of motorists killed in traffic crashes, pot alone was enough to up the chances of involvement in a deadly car accident by 80%.

Regardless of whether more states legalize the sale of marijuana, if you or your loved one was injured in a Boston car crash and you believe that one of the drivers involved was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you may have reason to pursue a Massachusetts personal injury or wrongful death case.

Most traffic crashes caused by impaired driving could have been avoided if only the motorist had chosen to not get into the car while under the influence. Intoxicated driving is negligent driving.

Brandeis University Faces Scrutiny by Federal Investigators for Sex Abuse Cases

Brandeis University in Waltham is the latest college to come under scrutiny by the United States Education Department for the handling of sexual assault complaints involving its students. The university is the 10th school in Massachusetts and one of more than 75 in the country to be investigated by the U.S. Dept. of Education according to WCVB.

According to reports (initially published by The Boston Globe), the investigation is centered on a student's allegation that the school wrongly and unfairly found him responsible for sexual misconduct this past spring and subsequently disciplined him.

While Brandeis spokesman Bill Schaller did not comment directly about that particular investigation, he acknowledged that the school had already taken initiatives to prevent and respond to sexual assault complaints, including opening a rape crisis center, hiring a psychological counselor who specializes in trauma and sexual violence, and relocating its office of sexual assault services and prevention to a more central location on campus. According to WCVB, the university conducted bystander-intervention training for students and created an informational website and distributed resource guides to students, faculty, and staff to increase awareness of sexual assault services and prevention efforts.

This past May the Department of Education began an investigation of 55 campuses for complaints that they possibly violated rules governing the handling of sexual violence and harassment cases. Included in that list are Amherst College, Boston University, Emerson College, Harvard College, Harvard Law School, the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Berklee College of Music, Hampshire College, UMass Dartmouth, and Brandeis University.

Medical Facility Where Joan Rivers Underwent Vocal Procedure Now Under Investigation

Even as friends, family, and the entertainment industry laid comedian Joan Rivers to rest, police are continuing to look into her death. The 81-year-old suffered cardiac arrest while undergoing routine surgery at the Yorkville Endoscopy medical center. She was then rushed to the hospital where she was placed on life support. Rivers died on Thursday.

Also probing her death is the New York State Department of Health. Investigators are trying to determine whether the facility violated any state rules. The medical examiners that conducted an autopsy on the late comedian could not determine her cause of death.

Ambulatory surgery centers have grown in popularity as insurers and patients seek out less expensive, more convenient treatments than what they can get at traditional hospitals. The cost is less due to less overhead and shorter wait times.

Doctors involved in such facilities can also benefit with more favorable reimbursement rates and more time with patients. However, some critics believe that ambulatory centers may create a conflict of interest. 90% of them are owned by at least one of the physicians practicing there. This, they say, creates a financial incentive for doctors to recommend that patients undergo procedures.

It is very possible that no medical negligence occurred during Rivers’ endoscopy. However, if a mistake or some form of carelessness did occur, the comedian’s daughter, Melissa Rivers, may be entitled to medical malpractice damages should she decide to file a lawsuit.

In this procedure, a patient is usually sedated as a scope is moved through the esophagus and into the stomach. An endoscopy can also be done to examine a patient’s vocal cords.

Surgical procedures, even routine ones, come with risks, and complications post-surgery complications or during the surgery can arise. If someone you love was injured, suffered health issues, or died following a medical procedure and you believe that Boston medical negligence was involved, you should speak with a Massachusetts medical malpractice law firm right away.
