$300,000 Settlement for Fatal Nursing Home Negligence


S. v. Alden Nursing Home

After falling at a nursing home, a male resident of a nursing home failed to regain his ability to speak, was not arouseable, and did not respond to painful stimuli.  Weeks later, he was diagnosed with a subdural hematoma. Surgery was performed to drain the hematoma.  He developed ulcers and may have become septic.  He died less than five months after the fall.
