Skilled care facility sued in connection to patient's death

When a care facility acts negligently in connection to the care of a patient, it can result in the patient suffering great harm. Such negligence can sometimes even result in a patient's death. Thus, it is very important for care facilities to act properly in regards to the care of patients.

Recently, a wrongful death case has arisen involving allegations of care facility negligence. The case is from Minnesota. The case involves a woman who was a patient of a skilled care facility in Plainview, Minnesota in January 2010.

The woman's family claims that, while the woman was at the facility, the facility acted negligently in connection to the woman's care. Included among the alleged negligent actions that the woman's family has accused the facility of is a failure to properly monitor the woman's condition.

According to the woman's family, the alleged negligent care contributed to the woman's death. The woman died on Jan. 23, 2010. The woman reportedly died of respiratory distress.

A wrongful death/medical malpractice lawsuit has been brought in a court in Minnesota by the woman's family against the skilled care facility in connection to the above allegations. It has been reported that damages are being sought in this lawsuit.

No patient of a care facility should have to suffer harm or lose his or her life because the care facility was negligent in its care of him or her. Thus, one hopes that all care facilities make sure to not act negligently when it comes to the care of patients. One also hopes care facilities are held accountable when they commit harmful negligence towards patients.
