Woman Claims Home Health Aide’s “Kidnapped” Mom

A recently filed nursing home negligence lawsuit claims a 91-year-old woman died after she received substandard care at her nursing home. The woman died of pneumonia and other problems. The lawsuit also alleges that the unwarranted and unlawful kidnapping of the 91-year-old was to secure payment for her inpatient care. The elderly abuse lawsuit said that the woman’s mother contacted the home health agency to help care for her mother but instead the nursing home immediately began pressuring her to place her mother in 24-hour-care. The nursing home then supposedly made up a story that they found the woman with dried feces on herself because of inadequate care at home. A judge then involuntarily committed the woman to the nursing home. The elderly neglect lawsuit alleges the woman developed pneumonia, was repeatedly given aspirin and medication she was allergic to, and otherwise was poorly cared for and not properly fed.
