Family Alleges that Nursing Home Negligence Caused Mother’s Death
Posted on January 28th, 2009 by Zane Cagle
In a wrongful death suit filed last week, the family of a mother alleged that a nursing home was directly responsible for their mother’s death. According to the mother’s three daughters, the nursing home’s negligence failed to ensure that the staff properly monitored their mother’s condition. They claim that the mother never received the right care, medication, or treatment for various ailments, causing her to suffer malnourishment and severe bedsores. Because of her state, the mother was placed in hospice care last May at which point the nursing home relinquished their duties, allowing her health to rapidly deteriorate until she died in July. The suit also claims that during her stay, two inexperienced student employees dropped the mother and victim breaking her femur. Initially, the break went untreated and caused internal ugateamunited.com/online/amoxil/ bleeding, which was also not treated properly. The executive board for the nursing home said that the organization is investigating the issues surrounding the case but affirms that the nursing home has always been committed to caring for its residents, giving proper care and concern for their families.
