Nursing Home Management Company to Pay $2M Over Resident's Death

This is a settlement for the Nursing Homes lawsuit.

Polk County, GA: The family of a woman who died just 100 days after being admitted to a nursing home have won their nursing home lawsuit, with the nursing home being found liable for the woman's death. The estate sued the nursing home's management company on grounds of negligence.

The woman had been admitted to the home for rehabilitation after she had fractured her leg. While in the home, she developed complications, including bedsores, which led to her losing her leg. She later died as a result of an infection.

The estate alleged that proper wound care was not undertaken by the nursing assistants, that those assistants lacked training, and that the nursing home was inadequately staffed. Following a trial, a Polk County Superior Court jury found that the management company was negligent and awarded $2,000,000 to the plaintiff.
