Nursing Home Sued After Wrongful Death

A man died two days after tipping over in his wheelchair near a nurse’s station in a nursing home. Now the man’s estate is suing the nursing home, saying that his wrongful death was due to elderly negligence. The lawyer’s assert that the home did not provide the man with adequate supervision when they failed to provide visual checks and appropriate restraints. The nursing home did not have an anti-tipping precaution, which is common in nursing homes that prevent nursing home negligence. The state’s department of health has now downgraded the nursing home’s license. Taking precautions will greatly reduce the number of falls that occur at nursing homes.
