New Jersey Nursing Home Wrongful Death Suit

A New Jersey nursing home, Cumberland Manor Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center was recently accused of negligence in the death of a former resident named Fred Pittman. The lawsuit claims a “staff member at the facility performed a simulated lap dance on the 84-year-old man.” Also staffers were said to have “failed to prevent and treat injuries, manage pain, comply with physician orders and provide adequate food and hydration,” according to the suit that was filed in state Superior Court.

Cohen of the claims as “of abusing Pittman by allowing a staff member to sit on decedent’s lap (and/or knee) and performing a simulated lap-dance, and/or acted in such a fashion to otherwise embarrass and humiliate decency."
