Unacceptable Nursing Home Care Leads to Resident's Death

11/17/2008 | Nursing Home Neglect

Another example of unacceptable nursing home care has led to a resident's death in Marion, Indiana. Bradner Village fired two nursing home employees after they failed to look in on him two nights in a row. Clarence Elliot, 76, was found outside, frozen to death. How can something like this happen? We entrust nursing homes to look at our loved ones when we are no longer able to. Unfortunately, there are many facilites that provide poor care. This is just one example. I'll bet if we look at the bed check logs, they will show that Mr. Elliot was "sleeping soundly" both nights. All the while he was wandering around freezing.
