Families Outraged Over Deaths Of Korean War Veteran Family Members In Nursing Home

Two families are outraged after their family members died of nursing home neglect. The two patients were Korean War veterans that suffered painful experiences leading to their tragic deaths. One veteran developed bed sores large enough to put a human fist into the hole. “There’s no doubt in my mind that he was neglected,” his granddaughter said.

The other veteran struggled with Alzheimer’s and accidently hung himself on his wheelchair restraint trying to get out of it. He had been left unattended for more than an hour. “My father was off the radar of the home and he’s supposed to be on 15-minute checks,” said his son. “And to die like a dog that jumped over a fence with a leash around his neck was just totally, totally unacceptable.” For more, read the story.
