Recent lawsuit claims nursing home neglect lead to man's death

Many individuals who are forced to reside in a care facility are no longer capable of looking after themselves. Nursing homes in California operate on the basis that they are able to provide quality treatment to these particular individuals. In the event that a similar facility fails to adequately monitor and treat a patient, the result can be catastrophic. A recent lawsuit has been filed in another state accusing a facility of nursing home neglect after a man died while under its care.

The man was admitted to the facility with physical and neurological disabilities. At a later time, he was found unresponsive and taken to the hospital. He was pronounced dead the following day. It is claimed that the facility failed to provide adequate care to the patient, leading to his suffering and death.

Each individual in a nursing home generally requires a different type and amount of treatment. When a patient is admitted, the facility is usually made aware of his or her current medical conditions, and is responsible for providing treatment accordingly. Unfortunately in some cases, patients do not receive adequate treatment, and they often suffer as a result.

Losing a loved one to nursing home neglect can is understandably devastating. Surviving family members are often left with significant medical and/or funeral bills, and they may choose to seek monetary restitution through the civil justice system. When facing such a loss, many people in California speak with an experienced attorney for assistance in filing a claim against the party deemed at fault.
