Rheaetta F. Wilson, et al. v. Americare Systems, Inc., et al

Date / Time:

Lower Court Summary:

Decedent’s next of kin filed this wrongful death action against an assisted living facility, two
nurses, and the facility’s management company for failure to provide proper care and
treatment. This appeal concerns only the jury verdict and judgment finding the management
company directly liable for failure to provide adequate staff at the assisted living facility. We
find no material evidence to support a conclusion that any staffing deficiency proximately
caused the decedent’s death. We therefore reverse the judgment finding direct liability on
the part of the management company.
