Nursing home staff facing charges after wrongful death settlement

The elderly are to be loved and well taken care of as members of the senior community. When a senior is in the care of staff in a nursing home facility, it is expected that the person will receive a good level of care. Residents of New Jersey may pass away of old age in these homes; however, there are those who die from a wrongful death due to negligence.

A World War II veteran wrongfully died while in the care of nursing staff in a Georgia nursing home. He told his family previously about his lack of comfort in the care he was receiving, which resulted in his family installing a hidden camera in his room. The veteran cried out for help six separate times as he was suffering a heart attack.

The nursing staff ignored his cries for help and even told him he was having anxiety. The staff did not call 911 even though his medical chart states that he must go to the hospital in the event that he suffered from chest pains. The staff members were caught on video at one point laughing around the dying victim. The staff testified that they only started CPR to create the illusion that they attempted to save the man's life.

No one in New Jersey should have to suffer the heartbreaking pain of losing a loved one due to the reckless and negligent actions of nursing staff. Those who do experience this monstrosity of a situation have the right to file a wrongful death civil claim and seek compensation. Any awarded compensation from a successful claim can aide in covering funeral and burial costs and help ease the family's pain and suffering.
