Kindred Settles Abuse Lawsuit during trial

Read from the webpage of a Massachusetts Nursing Home Attorney recently:

"Kindred East, LLC DBA Franklin Nursing and Rehabilitation recently settled an assault/abuse lawsuit against them during Trial in Massachusetts Norfolk Superior Court in front of Judge Patrick Brady. Opening statements were given to the Jury by Attorney Hamill and the first witnesses testified. Descriptions by the witness of several assaults committed against the plaintiff and rough treatment and swearing were described. They were committed by a 53 year old nurses aid, Bernadette Stackpole. The following day as 6 more witnesses sat in the hallway ready to testify, Kindred settled the case for $425,000. Kindreds original offer was $10,000."
