Nursing Home Death Leads to $26 Million Lawsuit

After two resident deaths, it became apparent that one nursing home was not operating at an acceptable level. One resident was covered in severe bed sores and developed an infection due to those bed sores. Another resident fell to his death. After a 26 million dollar nursing home negligence lawsuit was filed, investigators began finding more faults with the nursing home. The nursing home allowed 14 falls in one year even after precautions were implemented. Also, staff was unable to determine the severity of falls, which led to the wrongful death of a resident. Staff members tried to assure the family that the member died peacefully, however when they viewed their loved one they saw a huge bump on his head and many stitches. The family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit because they felt that the home did not create a safe environment. To read more about the nursing home negligence, please click the link.
