Nursing Home Slapped with Wrongful Death Suit

A nursing home is the subject of a wrongful-death lawsuit for the second time in less than a year. The wrongful death suit was filed after a man who had severe mental retardation was taken to the hospital because blood was found in his urine. The wrongful death lawsuit claims that the victim had fallen from his bed because a nurse failed to raise a guardrail, and he hit his head so hard that he had swelling the size of an orange. However, the fall was not reported to hospital staff. The lawsuit is just one of the incidents of trouble for the nursing home. At least 28 complaints of nursing home neglect were lodged in the past two years. To read more about the nursing home abuse, please click the link.
