Sudden or Unexpected Death at a Nursing Home
“Mom was perfectly fine when we visited her in the nursing home on Wednesday,” Bill told us. “And then, on Thursday, she passed away. There was no warning. And we don’t know why or how this happened. My family wants an explanation and answers but no one is giving us any!”
Unfortunately, this is an all-too-common story. Families place their parents in skilled nursing homes expecting that their parents will receive the highest level of care, but, too often, unexplained events result in injury or even death.
There are any number of preventable reasons why a loved one might die unexpectedly while under the care of a nursing home including preventable falls, sepsis from bedsores, choking, or dehydration. Often it is a matter of the home being understaffed, so that the overworked nurses can’t take care of every patient at once. But you put your loved one in that home to be taken care of at the highest level, and that home failed you and your family.
