$1.8 million verdict in Florida nursing home case

Georgia based Mariner Health Care settled a lawsuit with a nursing home patient’s widow and family a week before the case was supposed to go to trial. The patient died from shock due to hundreds of ant bites at Atlantic Shore nursing home, one of Florida’s largest nursing homes. This is the second Florida ant bite case in the past six years; in 2000 a nursing home settled for an undisclosed amount with the family of an 87 year old woman.
