A $228,000 nursing home abuse settlement has gone unpaid to the family of a 74-year old man who died at the home in 2003. Haven Healthcare Center of West Hartford reported that the facility was unable to pay the settlement agreed upon during mediation last February. The Judge has imposed a $75/day penalty upon the home for each day the settlement is not paid.
The settlement was based on the wrongful death of the man at the nursing home that occured when the home failed to follow a physician’s order to lower the man’s elevated potassium levels.
