A West Virginia woman claims her mother was fatally injured while in the care of a nursing home. She filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the facility and its administrator on Sept. 9.
A West Virginia family is alleging nursing home neglect after a loved one died at a Fayette County facility. It is a sad reality often faced by elderly people and their families, as the centers responsible for their care allow untreated medical conditions to cause larger problems. In this instance, a man reportedly died from an untreated sepsis infection.
All nursing homes should set out with the goal of protecting patients and providing a high level of care. When mistakes take place or nursing home staff members are poorly trained or incompetent, negligence can lead to poor care and even injuries or death.
