TX Jury Awards $600K in Wound/Understaffing Case

After more than a day of deliberation, a civil jury found a San Antonio
nursing home negligent Wednesday in its care of a now-deceased resident
who developed severe, infected bedsores.

Jurors ordered Retama
Manor Nursing Center to pay the estate of Emilio Gonzalez $250,000 for
his physical pain and suffering, $150,000 for mental pain and anguish
and $192,439.88 in medical bills.

But the nearly $600,000
verdict is expected to be reduced substantially after state District
Judge Victor Negrón applies Texas tort reform caps that have been in
place since 2003.
