Man Sues Nursing Home After Mother’s Death

A man who lost his mother to a serious fall at a nursing home has decided to bring the elderly negligence to the attention of lawmakers and health regulators. The man believes that the nursing home is responsible for the wrongful death of his mother. The claim is based on the “negligent care and supervision” of his mother. She was first hospitalized after a fall from her bed at the nursing home. The woman fell again after her hospitalization. It was discovered that the nursing home was operating under an unpublicized consent order from the state department. Officials had reprimanded the nursing home, fined it and put its license on probation for two years. The order was based “on findings which seriously jeopardized the health, safety and welfare of the patients and which have resulted in serious negative patient outcomes.” The man believes that his mother, who died after a third fall, should have been notified about the violations that the nursing home had incurred.
