I have some insider knowledge on this so let me explain.

Nursing homes pay and it's not always easy work.

When the economy is really good, it's much much harder to get good employees.

FOR PROFIT nursing homes in particular because they only get a fixed (low) amount of money for the poor residents because the state gives them $X per day instead of $3X per day from the people that have LTC insurance or assets etc.

I've seen claims from these situations 20 years ago and this is NOT NEW.

Heck, I've seen a few cases even worse than this.

Start hiring the dregs because you can't get people to do work for low wages in a good economy and the next thing you know they skip feedings, skip bed changing, abuse patients, steal from patients etc. etc. etc.

What a tragic and awful way to die. This is mind boggling how this can happen.

It won't even see a courtroom as it will be settled and for a large sum of money. The family is entitled to compensation. This is an undeniable case of negligence in healthcare.

Absolutely horrible, the poor woman. Seeing her old photos from her modeling days got me.

It will be settled but let me ask you what you think it will be? I have my own idea and it will certainly vary by where in the country but given the person is essentially terminal with extreme dementia it's another story.

I'm guessing 500k.

This is why you must check these places out thoroughly. Good if someone comes to visit once in a while too. They would have caught it. When you get old, no one cares but MAYBE a relative or close friend.
