Nursing-Home Death Spurs Nursing Home Negligence Suit

A nursing home negligence suit has been filed against a county alleging shoddy care of a nursing-home resident led to months of pain and ultimately the woman’s death. The elderly negligence lawsuit alleges staffers at the county-run nursing home caused the 81-year-old victim to fail, than failed to treat and report to her doctor a large pressure ulcer that formed. The lawsuit says the pressure ulcer became infected and caused her death early last year. The suit, which was filed by her son, alleges the county committed fraud by not revealing the extent to which the nursing home was improperly staffed. Pressure ulcers are the most common signs of nursing home negligence. To read more about the nursing home abuse, please click the link.
