Medical malpractice lawsuit filed against troubled facility

Most families want to ensure that their loved ones receive appropriate care when they become unable to care for themselves. As a result, some choose to seek the assistance of a nursing home.

A recent medical malpractice lawsuit filed in another state illustrates the issues that some patients face.
