The Powless Law Firm has filed a nursing home negligence claim with the Indiana Department of Insurance against the Carmel nursing home, McGivney Healthcare Center. The claim alleges the patient was an elderly and disabled patient who was admitted to the facility for professional nursing care in return for monetary payment to the nursing home. Attorney Jeff Powless, who represents the family of the deceased patient, stated “we believe documents and other evidence clearly demonstrate that the nursing home staff had good reason to believe this patient was suffering a stroke, yet failed to obtain necessary medical assistance for days. Because of that delay, the patient aspirated on food while trying to eat. Tragically, by the time the patient was taken to the hospital, she had developed aspiration pneumonia, which led to sepsis and then her death.”
Our investigation into these matters is continuing. If you have information related to substandard care provided by this facility, please contact us at 877-769-5377. Together we can make a difference.
