Nursing Home Accused Of Neglect In Death Of Resident

A recent tragic incident and resulting lawsuit concerns a 93-year-old woman who died in extreme pain from poisonous insect bites over several weeks. They were due to filthy conditions in the senior facility. For several reasons, this should never have happened.

Of course, a 24-7 professionally supervised staff could have prevented it. Also, regular family visits of at least once a week help keep the residence in compliance. Considering that nursing home care now costs from $4K and up per month, families should expect high standards of medical care, cleanliness and professional services.

Additionally, most nursing homes are for-profit businesses. The owners want to keep elderly residents alive for as long as possible. Considering today’s sky-high rates, it makes good business sense. Do they care if one patient does of filth and bug bites. There’s always fresh money coming in from other families.
