The family of an elderly couple who died within 2 months of each other at a Eugene, Oregon nursing home has sued the facility, citing wrongful death as a result of the alleged incompetent and negligent care the couple received while living at the home.
Harvey and Maxine Hanson, 92 and 91 at the time of their deaths, were admitted to Avamere Riverpark of Eugene in March 2014. Both patients were classified as a high fall risk and despite Mr. Hanson’s doctor’s advice for physical therapy, Mr. Hanson managed to fall 13 times in the mere 8 months he resided at Avamere, never receiving the recommended therapies to reduce his risk. Mrs. Hanson fell at least 4 times while a resident.
