After almost drowning at age four, Aliza is in a coma state, fully dependent on a ventilator and a feeding tube. With 24/7 skilled nursing care, Aliza was able to live at home with her family and avoid more costly institutionalization. However, when the State decided to reduce the number of hours of her in-home nursing care, Aliza’s doctor said it would place Aliza’s life in danger because her family was not able to meet her complex medical needs. Aliza’s family thus faced the prospect of institutionalizing her and tearing their family apart. LSGMI represented Aliza at a hearing and proved that it was medically necessary for her to continue to receive 24/7 care. As a result, Aliza remains at home with her family receiving the care she needs at a fraction of the cost to the government.
