Nursing Home Administrator Faces Negligent Homicide Charges For Neglect Of Patient

A state attorney general’s office has filed a lawsuit against a nursing home with a history of abuse and neglect. A patient was supposed to use a ventilator at night, but was not supported by the machine when she went into cardiac arrest. The patient died and as a result the administrator has been charged with negligent homicide.

The facility did not heed warnings after 5,000 citations from the department of health. The fact that the care deficiencies that were never remedied is most unfortunate for the family and the patient that died. For more, read the story.
