Family Files Nursing Home Abuse Lawsuit

A family has filed a nursing home negligence lawsuit claiming that the 51-year-old wrongfully died as a result of the nursing home abuse. The family alleges that the victim was abused while residing at the nursing home. They also allege the nursing home left her malnourished. The nursing home did not properly treat her wounds, leaving her to rot to death. The woman was suffering from cerebral palsy and mental disabilities when a relative placed her in the nursing home. The nursing home abuse lawsuit states that the victim rotted to death as a result of the facility owners. Supposedly the nursing home employees actively hid the victim’s physical condition by wrapping her in blankets and a toboggan to cover her ears and face. A nurse is quoted in the lawsuit stating that “the staff failed to provide adequate and appropriate care, treatment and services.” The victim developed bedsores and smelled of urine. This type of nursing home abuse is deplorable and all nursing homes should ensure that this kind of abuse never occurs. To read into the nursing home abuse lawsuit, please click the link.
