The family of an 88-year-old nursing home resident recently filed a lawsuit against a nursing home for negligence. The family claims that the home neglected to supervise patients allowing a 25-year-old resident to attack and stab the woman multiple times in the neck. The family alleges that the nursing home was negligent in admitting the patient with a serious mental disorder and a violent criminal past without performing a background check. The nursing home also failed to prevent the violent patient from accessing sharp objects. The victim’s family is also suing the violent patient’s doctors and other mental health facilities he attended for medical malpractice as they failed to treat the patient with proper medication.
