Jury awards $160 million in nursing home suit

Comments Off

A San Antonio jury awarded one of the larged civil judgements ever recorded when it found that a nursing home knowingly paired a frail 81 year old man with a violent, mentally ill roommate who visciously beat him to death.

During the 2 week trial, attorneys for the plaintiffs offered evidence that Mendoza’s roommate was involved in 30 assaults before he was paired with the decedant.

From San Antonio to New Jersey, it is a lack of staffing and training that leads to these types of nursing home abuse and neglect based injuries.
