The verdict in a nursing home negligence case is certain to set a precedent for future neglect cases across the country.
After hearing the gruesome details of the case, the jury awarded $90 million to the family that lost a loved one with dementia. The elderly woman was in a nursing home for three weeks, waiting to be transferred to a facility that specializes in Alzheimer's cases. During that time, the woman's health declined rapidly, bringing her from a woman that could walk and communicate to one that was unresponsive and unable to even feed herself.
Although the woman was finally brought to a hospital after the son begged to have her transferred, the woman died almost immediately in intensive care. The jury decided to give her family the full amount possible for punitive and economic damages, a figure that could be reduced over time in trial or appeals courts.
