This case involves the neglect and abuse of an elderly man living in an RCFE. During his residency he was taken to the hospital because of a change in mental status and he was discovered to have several pressure sores as well as other injuries, and now required a higher standard of care. Even though the RCFE knew they could not meet his needs, they accepted him back into the facility. Denied the medical care he needed, he deteriorated quickly and died. This case settled confidentially for $1,681,994.00
