Nursing Home Fined $90K in Man’s Death

A nursing home is facing a stiff penalty after state investigators found the facility did not adequately protect a 92-year-old resident from a fatal fall. The 120-bed nursing home received a “AA” citation and a $90,000 fine for the 2007 death of a resident. The state said the death certificate listed the victim’s cause of death as accident from falling down on his head in the bathroom. Falls are a common form of nursing home abuse.
