Turning over a loved one to a nursing home is difficult. Many facilities provide excellent care. But, as we have all seen, the treatment and conditions in some nursing homes can be horrendous. When the family of a West Texas man who died after nursing home neglect called CMZ, we took action to uncover a cover up. The facility attempted to mislead and lie to the family about their father’s condition. But, when he was finally seen by a physician, it was discovered the “minor” fall had actually fractured his hip and required immediate surgery. The facility delayed reporting the incident to the family then mislead the family about the seriousness of the fall and their father’s condition. The facility delayed calling for medical help. By the time he was seen by the doctor’s, his condition had deteriorated drastically and he did not survive. The facility refused to accept responsibility and tried to shift the blame to his underlying medical conditions. But, the jury was not fooled.
