Bloomfield Hills Nursing Home Sued For Wrongful Death of Resident

Our nursing home neglect law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. recently filed a lawsuit for the wrongful death of a Bloomfield Hills nursing home resident.   The lawsuit was filed in the Oakland County Circuit Court in Pontiac, Michigan.  Our nursing home neglect attorneys are suing the Bloomfield Hills nursing home for the alleged wrongful death of our client arising from a resident fall that took place at the facility.  Before even being admitted to the Bloomfield Hills home, our client had suffered from dementia and had a history of falls.  In fact, upon admission, the resident was identified as a fall risk, therefore the nursing home facility should have taken every precaution necessary to ensure their resident did not fall.

Unfortunately, the facility did not put in place necessary fall prevention measures for our client, and due to this fact, she fell multiple times at the Michigan nursing home and was seen on several occasions sitting on the floor next to her bed.  Shortly after her admission, she fell and suffered a head injury.  She was taken to the local hospital and admitted for her injury and underwent an emergent craniotomy.  After a period of hospitalization, our client was then released and discharged back to the same nursing home.

Shorty after her re-admission, she was taken to the same hospital and seen by an orthopedic surgeon after suffering a fractured leg from another fall.  Due to the nature of the fracture, she underwent surgery as a result of the fall.  For her post-surgical recovery she was admitted to the hospital, and then re-released back to the same nursing home.  However, due to her injuries from the falls, her overall condition continued to deteriorate and she died shortly thereafter.

No trial date has been set by the court for this lawsuit.  The wrongful death lawsuit alleges that the Bloomfield Hills nursing home was negligent in the care and treatment of the resident and failed to take an appropriate measures to prevent the repeated falls.  It seeks compensation for the family members and aims to prevent such a tragedy from happening to another resident at that nursing home facility.
