Jury awards millions in nursing home abuse lawsuit

Posted on September 27th, 2011 No Comments

A West Virginia jury has awarded more than $90 million in punitive and economic damages to the family of an elderly woman who died as a result of nursing home neglect.

The woman, who was suffering from dementia, entered the nursing home able to walk with the aid of a walker and was communicative. While in the nursing home, the staff failed to feed and care for her to the point where she was severely dehydrated and could no longer feed herself three weeks later.

Her son says when he approached the nursing home about getting her properly situated he was given a wall of paperwork and other delays that could have saved her life.
