Man’s Death at Nursing Home is Under Investigation

An 86-year-old man, reportedly suffering from dementia, rolled down a short flight of stairs in his wheelchair at his retirement home and suffered fatal injuries. Sources say that the man was able to leave the oversight of his nursing home attendants and go through at least one security door, eventually coming upon the area where he suffered his injuries. He was found by the staffers and by the time EMS arrived the man had already wrongfully died. The man’s death is currently being investigated by the police. They say there is a very narrow timeline between the last time the wheelchair-bound man was seen between the attendants and the time of the death. They also said there should have been an alarm that went off when the man exited the nursing home. To read more about the nursing home death, please click the link.
