Lawsuit accuses nursing home of wrongful death

It seems that as the population of the United States ages, more and more people in New Jersey and across the country may be left making difficult decisions about family members who are no longer able to independently care for themselves. For some, this may mean placing a family member in a nursing home facility. Unfortunately, if appropriate care is not provided, a resident's condition can deteriorate, sometimes even resulting in death. One out-of-state woman claims that negligence on the behalf of nursing home staff resulted in a wrongful death.

Court papers indicate that the woman's mother died in Jan. 2016. The daughter asserts that staff at Willow Rose Rehab & Health Care Center were negligent. Their negligence allegedly caused the mother to develop decubitus ulcers, or bedsores.

Unfortunately, bed sores can become deadly. The daughter claims that her mother developed sepsis in her blood due to complications resulting from her bed sores. As a result, the mother passed away.

No matter the circumstances, the death of a loved one is always difficult. The knowledge that a family member's death may have been preventable can make a loss seem even more tragic. In a case of nursing home neglect, families can take action that may both help them with the financial ramifications associated with their loss as well as ensure that a nursing home facility is held responsible for actions that resulted in a wrongful death. In some cases, pursuing such legal options may be the only thing that protects other patients in New Jersey and across the country from similar negligence.
