How Can a Nursing Home Stop Infections?

Hospital based infections are an increasing problem with as many as 95,000 deaths each year. Simple handwashing can eliminate the transmission of many of these infections, including MRSA (Methicillin–Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) which is called a “super bug.” It is problematic if your immune system is weak, and nursing homes must constantly work to prevent outbreaks. The failure of a health care worker to wash their hands may spread the “super bug” from one patient to the next.

We will work hard to hold people and companies responsible for injuries caused by their carelessness.

At such a scary time in our lives, it was so reassuring to have Bert represent us. He and everyone we dealt with at his office were invariably professional, compassionate, and responsive to our many questions and concerns. We knew that we could trust Bert to always act in our best interest.
Mr. Harrington was very professional and kept us well informed. We are very pleased in every aspect and we recommend him to other people.
Attorney Bert Polito and Harrington helped reassure my family through the entire process. We are extremely grateful to him and his staff.
