A Colorado jury awarded the family of an 88 year-old man $3.2 million after he died of a baseball-sized bed sore at a Colorado nursing home, the Pioneer Healthcare Center. The nursing home staff did not tell anyone about the sore until it was too late.
The wrongful death victim was admitted to the nursing home in 2009 after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. A nurse’s aide finally told the man’s son about the infected bed sore, and the nursing home suggested the man be treated at the nursing home instead of a hospital. The man eventually went to the hospital, but he died of dehydration and malnourishment soon thereafter. Pioneer has been cited for multiple nursing home health violations.
