Jury Awards Valley Medical Center Patient $1.8 Million for Nursing Negligence
Date:7/23/2009

dbo. "They dismissed her as an old lady with exaggerated complaints, but the jury told the hospital that the elderly deserves the same level of care as everyone else."

"I have been involved in many cases against hospitals and can say that Valley went to extraordinary lengths to avoid its responsibility in Ellen's case," Gellatly added. "The family wanted an explanation and help to pay for their mom's nursing-home care and Valley offered indifference and callous disregard."

Gellatly noted just one of Valley's expert witnesses cost Valley more than $90,000 in its attempt to avoid accountability.

The jury heard stories about the highly independent, vivacious Sandbo, a life-long Renton resident and nurse with Army Air Corps, the predecessor of the U. S. Air Force. She is survived by her son, and six grandchildren.

"She was not just a little old lady with exaggerated complaints, and the hospital should have taken care of her," said Gellatly. "We hope this will send a message that the elderly should get the same level of care."
