Ruslan Kondratyuk, Esq.
My Proudest Moment as a Lawyer
I was contacted because a young man with cerebral palsy died unexpectedly while under the care of his home nurse. The notes placed in the boy’s chart by his nurse described a sudden cardiac arrest with no time for her to intervene. Other lawyers had declined to help this family get justice because the records made it seem like there was nothing to pursue.
My review of the medical records led me to believe something was not right. I noticed the carbon copy of the nursing note from the day the boy died was the only one missing from the boy’s large binder of records. Looking further, I noticed faint evidence of the missing note in the binder created by pen pressure on the next page. I hired a forensic handwriting expert to help me read the faint marks. Together, we proved the boy’s nurse had destroyed the medical record that told the true story of her negligent care, and replaced it with a more favorable version of events.
If it wasn’t for us, her secret may have never been revealed. We got the truth, and we held the nurse financially accountable for the boy’s death.
