Multiple deaths at nursing home linked to neglect

For many families in New York, the decision to place their elderly loved ones in a nursing home is not an easy one. Often, people spend considerable time researching facilities and comparing factors such as quality of care, amenities, facility upkeep and transparency to find the best possible fit for the people they love most. However, nursing home neglect is not unheard of and can be an unsettling thought for many people.

In a recent investigation of a Tennessee nursing home, investigators concluded that neglect on the part of the facility's staff lead to the injuries or deaths of several patients. The findings showed that multiple poor decisions were made that ultimately put the health and safety of patients at risk. For example, investigators found that specified physicians orders were not being followed, lackluster efforts to communicate with physicians created worsening conditions for patients and a general disregard of prescriptions created dangerous circumstances.

In one case, a man who was experiencing persistent ulcers was admitted to the hospital. During his stay, health care workers found he had maggots in several wounds that appeared to have been left untreated. His death appeared suspicious and was allegedly linked to neglect. In another case, a woman with ovarian cancer passed away after staff failed to communicate her worsening condition to physicians. Following the investigation, the facility was fined $50,000 and required to suspend all new admissions for an unknown period of time.

If people suspect their loved one is being treated poorly and the victim of nursing home neglect, they may wish to contact an attorney for legal assistance. Doing so may be able to alleviate some of the stresses of building a case and navigating the often-complicated legal system.
