Nursing Home Abuse Settlement Reported

Comments Off

Life Care Center of Elkhorn has settled a lawsuit that accused it of neglecting its patients and allowing an elderly woman to lie in her own feces for hours at a time after back surgery.

A patient developed an infection in her wound during her stay at the Life Care Center of Elkhorn that required surgery to reopen her incision and drain the infection and fecal matter in the wound.

Terms of the settlement between Hanzel and Life Care Centers of America of Cleveland, Tenn., were not disclosed.
