Family Files Lawsuit Following the "Preventable Death" of Relative in a Nursing Home

A lawsuit was born after a family alleges their relative’s mental and physical health declined after being admitted to a nursing home.  According to the suit, the 65-year-old was a victim of several preventable deficiencies.  Claims against the nursing home and its administrator include failure to prevent and treat pressure ulcers, dehydration, and infection, among others.
