There are few things more heartbreaking than watching a malpractice lawsuit against a nursing home end in a settlement of less than $1 million.
And the reason is simple: There are a lot of nursing homes where the nursing home has no insurance and the malpractice claims are going to be much, much higher.
And those are the nursing homes that the American Academy of Nursing (AAN) has labeled as the most egregious nursing home malpractice-prone, a list that includes at least 17 nursing homes across the country.
And that’s not counting some of the hospitals that fall in the category as well.
A few nursing homes, like the home in New Mexico where a nursing mother lost her life after she was placed in an “unsuitable” nursing home, have been identified by the AAN as having some of their facilities have no insurance.
So if you’re in a nursing homes insurance pool and you think you might be entitled to a nursing damages settlement, think again.
In some states, the amount you’re entitled to will depend on what’s called a “settlement schedule,” which is a formula that determines the amount of money a nursing pool can receive in a lawsuit.
For example, in California, the settlement amount can range from $5,000 to $25,000 depending on the amount and the type of nursing facility.
In Texas, the payout ranges from $1,000 per day to $20,000.
And, depending on how much you are awarded, you can get a much larger payout if you file your claim within the first six months.
The average payout in the U.S. is about $7,000, according to the AANS.
But, for some nursing home facilities, the money isn’t necessarily guaranteed.
For instance, a nursing facility in North Carolina called NOLA Residential Care, which was found to have a nursing-home-like facility, had a settlement schedule that didn’t include any insurance.
A Nursing Home Accident Settlement is an attempt to bring more justice for nursing home patients and families.
But while AAN lists a number of nursing facilities that are in the top ten most egregious, a few are more common than others.
Here are the 10 nursing homes with the highest nursing-pool liability claims per capita in the country, according for their overall nursing pool claims.
Nursing home in Texas.
The Nursing Home Disaster Settlement is the second-highest nursing-related nursing-claim payout in Texas, after the $2.5 million settlement from the Texas Medical Center, according the Aans’ 2016 annual report.
The Texas Medical Department has been sued for negligence in more than 100 nursing-maternity-related cases.
This year, the nursing-care facilities that sued were able to recover more than $4.7 million from the nursing care homes that sued.
Nursing Home in Ohio.
The nursing-housing disaster settlement that led to the death of a mother was $1.9 million.
According to the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, the state is now paying out more than half a million dollars to nursing home survivors.
In addition, the Ohio Medical Center was the one nursing-academy-ranked facility that paid out $6.5 to nursing-family victims.
Nursing facility in Alabama.
The $1 billion nursing-hospital liability settlement from an Alabama nursing home in 2010 was awarded in part because of the deaths of nursing-parents.
In 2011, the Alabama Nursing Home Association said that the nursing house in Alabama “is a national model of caring” that is “known to be a model of nursing safety and health care.”
In 2013, the State of Alabama sued the nursing facility that operated the nursing unit, alleging that it had failed to maintain the safety of its nursing homes residents and workers.
The Alabama Nursing Accident Compensation Fund was able to collect about $8 million from Alabama residents and caregivers, according The New York Times.
Nursing-home in Tennessee.
The Tennessee Nursing Home Settlement, which led to an $8.5 billion settlement, was awarded to the nursing and allied health facility.
The Tennessee Accident and Emergency Medical Response (AEMR) Department sued the facility in 2014 after an incident occurred that caused the deaths and injury of its two employees, according.
Nursing center in Virginia.
A nursing home nurse who was critically injured in a 2014 fire in a Virginia nursing home was awarded a $6 million nursing-damages settlement.
Nursing care center in Illinois.
A Pennsylvania nursing home that was found in breach of its insurance policies is also among the nursing malplacings the A AN has identified.
In May of 2016, the Pennsylvania Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) sued the state-owned nursing home for negligence that resulted in the death and injury to its resident.
The State of Pennsylvania also filed suit against the nursing center for $1
