Care Issues Trigger Multiple Lawsuits for One Nursing Home Company

The son of a former nursing home resident has filed a lawsuit against the facility, alleging that the facility caused his mother's death.  His mother, 80, was admitted to the facility on Aug. 27, 2008, according to the suit, and died Oct. 7, 2008.  The complaint cites “numerous violations” related to health and safety regulations that the facility was cited for immediately before the woman became a resident.

The complaint also claims that during her short stay, she suffered falls, abrasions, medication errors, malnutrition, dehydration and weight loss, pneumonia, complications related to chronic obstructed pulmonary disorder, infections including staph, sepsis, poor hygiene, pain and eventually death.

The company which owns this facility has had several other recent wrongful death lawsuit. One of the suit involved hidden camera footage which was used to bring criminal charges against several facility employees. For more, read the story.
