A Montgomery County jury awarded a plaintiff a sizable award for losing a ‘significant’ amount of weight in the summer and fall of 2001.
Why does Weight Loss Matter in a Nursing Home?
Many of us joke that we could stand to lose a few pounds. However, nursing home weight loss is a serious injury. When an elderly nursing home resident is malnourished, this means they are not getting enough calories for their body to function. This can lead to organ failure, skin breakdown and even death. It is the nursing home’s job to make sure their residents are getting enough food/water to stay healthy. This is why the jury awarded the Plaintiff damages in the Maryland nursing home abuse trial.
A Wrongful Death Lawsuit Which Resulted in a Plaintiff’s Verdict for Significant Weight Loss
Ultimately, in Crossley vs. Springbrook Adventist Nursing and Rehab, the jury agreed with the Plaintiff and found in the family’s favor. The case was venued in the 6th Judicial Circuit, in and for Montgomery County. The nursing home negligence took place in Rockville, Maryland. The matter was resolved on March 3, 2006.
