   Ms. Bartkowski is a senior attorney in the firm’s Nursing Home Neglect Department. She handles cases against nursing homes, adult living facilities and hospitals whose neglect and abuse leads to bedsores, pressure ulcers, falls, fractures, malnutrition, death and loss of dignity on behalf of the residents we represent.   

   She handles these files from inception to trial as well as through the Surrogate’s Court process of approval of any award in cases involving a decedent.  

   Cases involving nursing homes are prosecuted under New York State’s Public Health Law Section 2101-d. This Resident Right’s Statute is one of the broadest and most protective in the Country, allowing recovery in cases which include the injuries listed above. Both Medicare and Medicaid have a statutory right against any recovery in the nursing home neglect cases. In cases involving a decedent, Medicaid has the right to collect back for 10 years of services provided whether related to the claims in the case or not.
