Family Files Lawsuit Against Nursing Home For Death Of Family Member

The family is stating that the poor quality care led to their mother’s death.

“[The nursing home] not only never performed any neuro(logical) checks, but also failed to inform her physician, a blatant disregard of their own protocol and policies in place,”  For more, read the story.
