Nursing Home Neglect Lawyers Weighs In On Wrongful Death Lawsuit

A wrongful death lawsuit was brought against McDowell Nursing & Rehabilitation in Charleston, West Virginia for the injuries and death of James Allen.  Claudia Ross, daughter of James Allen, claims her father suffered serious injuries due to deprived care, neglect and abuse.  She states that her father was a patient at the nursing home from November 9, 2010 until December 6, 2010. During his stay, he suffered uncontrolled high glucose, severe dehydration and urinary tract infections. The lawsuit, which was filed in Kanawha Circuit Court, alleges that Allen suffered serious injuries “from a pattern of poor care, neglect and abuse” on the part of the nursing home staff.

The suit (Case number: 13-C-18) claims that negligent care by the nursing home and its staff caused Allen’s physical condition to deteriorate and contributed to his death. In addition, Ross alleges that the nursing home did not train its employees properly and failed to exercise the degree of care required or expected of reasonable healthcare providers.

Some of the most common signs that a nursing home may be negligent include, but not limited to.
