The family of a woman who died after being admitted to a nursing home has won their nursing home lawsuit. The nursing home was found liable for the woman's death, a death which occurred 100 days after the woman's admittance to the home. The family sued the home's management company and won on the grounds of negligence. After fracturing her leg the woman was admitted to the nursing home for rehabilitation. However while in the home she suffered complications, including bedsores, which ultimately led to her losing her leg. The woman later suffered an infection that led to her death. The family alleged that nursing assistants did not administer proper wound care, that assistants lacked training and that the home was inadequately staffed. After the trial commenced the jury found that the management company was negligent and awarded $2 million to the plaintiff.

Nursing home neglect and abuse statistics are on the rise. Nursing home neglect or abuse can occur in a variety of ways, all to the detriment of the victim. Unfortunately many of these instances go unreported. In many instances, nursing homes are understaffed, and the staff that is employed is overworked, poorly trained, or even blatantly unethical. However, most abuse and neglect can be prevented. The first step to fixing this epidemic is holding those at fault liable.
