One-Star Rated Nursing Home Faces Wrongful Death Lawsuit

One nursing home has been named a defendant in a lawsuit claiming its negligence caused or contributed to the death of a patient. The decedent’s brother utilized an attorney to pursue claims that the facility staff neglected to provide an adequate level of care. The claims involve injuries such as pressure ulcers, which may have delayed his treatment for the patient’s existing pineoblastoma.    

The nursing home has a one-star rating from the government in regards to quality and health standards. The plaintiff’s attorney asserted that this facility is not unfamiliar with lawsuits. In an interview, the attorney stated the facility has “been fined by the federal government for having repeated service issues.” For more, read the story.
