Woman sues nursing home, alleges nursing home neglect

Losing a loved one as a result of a nursing home's inadequate care is grounds for a lawsuit in Pennsylvania and all other states. One woman in a recent out-of-state case said a nursing home did not care for an elderly woman, age 87, properly. She decided to file a nursing home neglect lawsuit against the facility.

SSD fund extended to 2016

Suffering a disability in Pennsylvania can be challenging physically or mentally as well as financially. Fortunately, Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSD, can be a big help by enabling people to receive financial benefits when they are no longer able to work. SSD, which was at risk of experiencing cuts in its fund in 2016, was recently extended through 2022.

University settles medical malpractice, wrongful death claims

If medical providers in Pennsylvania do not exercise a reasonable degree of care when handling patients, they may be held legally accountable for any deaths that occur as a result. In another state, a university has been sued for allegedly causing the death of one patient and injuring another. The university has decided to settle the medical malpractice and wrongful-death lawsuits for nearly $2 million.

Alleged nursing home neglect leads to woman's death

If a patient in a nursing home in Pennsylvania dies because of the home staff's negligence, the patient's family members have the right to take legal action. One nursing home resident recently passed away in another state after reportedly falling down several times. A nursing home neglect lawsuit has thus been filed against the facility.
