R.N. EXONERATED OF WRONGDOING – IMPROPER FINDING OF NEGLECT REVERSED AND DISMISSED
The Firm secured a significant administrative appellate victory for a registered nurse who had been improperly charged in two separate cases of neglect. After initial findings wrongly found the claims against the nurse to be substantiated, which were then upheld on an initial administrative review, the nurse retained Denlea & Carton to pursue an Administrative Appeal before the Justice Center for the Protection of People with Special Needs. Halfway through a heated cross-examination conducted by John Leifert of the Justice Center’s key witness in the first case, the Justice Center conceded that it could not prove either case. As a result, they reversed their findings, sealed both matters, and discontinued all proceedings.
Kudos to John for his successful advocacy which led to the nurse’s exoneration and the restoration of her professional reputation.
