$799,000 settlement for elder neglect and wrongful death

$799,000 settlement for elder neglect and wrongful death of patient at high risk for falling

An elderly man went to live at a skilled nursing facility, and needed to be watched by the facility staff more closely to avoid falling. He had multiple falls, but the facility did not provide him to the extra supervision he needed due to their staffing issues, and as a result he continued to be injured in falls, ultimately passing away due to a head injury sustained in one of the falls.
