Georgia Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Lawyers
Posted on Sep 22, 2010
A Floyd County jury returned a verdict recently in a terrible case of neglect and abuse of an elderly resident of the Moran Lake Nursing Home. The elderly man was malnourished, dehydrated, denied medical care for a broken hip and ultimately died after what was supposed to be a temporary stay as he received post-operative rehabilitative care. He was otherwise in good health.
The lawyers for the victims family walked the jury through compelling evidence of deplorable conditions, underpaid workers, understaffed and underfunded facilities as well as outright neglect and abuse of the elderly that incensed the jury. They proved that the owner drained his nursing facilities of essential funds for patient care, leaving the residents and employees to deal with feces-covered walls, no hot water, no food, no clean linens or adult diapers, no medicine nor proper medical equipment - all while enriching himself by using the nursing home account as his own personal banking account.
