Reza and his team worked diligently uncovering evidence of misconduct and neglect in a Maryland nursing home. He and his trial co-counsel, Tara Kellermeyer from JJS, effectively cross examined Defendant’s nursing staff, administrative personnel, and experts exceedingly well. Through those efforts, we showed the jury that our client’s deceased husband, a 63 year old reverend who survived a stroke, COVID, and kidney failure, ultimately died not of those conditions but of neglect at the Stella Maris nursing home where he was sent for post-stroke rehabilitation. Because Stella Maris failed to turn and reposition the resident, he developed a pressure ulcer (aka bed sore). In less than two weeks because of the facility’s neglect, the pressure ulcer was a Stage III wound. It continued to progress after his discharge from the nursing home, and ultimately caused his death according to a Baltimore County jury. The jury returned a verdict showing the family their loss matters and we will not accept patients being left to die due to inadequate care where nursing homes continue to cut corners in place of providing quality patient care.
