Lawsuit Filed Against New York Nursing Home In Relation To Nun’s Death

Nun’s Death in Nursing HomeThe family of a 90-year-old nun who died from complications related to a fractured skull has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Summit Park Hospital and Nursing Care Center.  The New York nursing home allegedly failed to secure unsteady dressers, within residents rooms, to the wall.  Apparently, when the nun attempted to get some belongings from the dresser, the furniture collapsed on her.  The nursing home became aware of dangerous problems with the dressers when a similar incident occurred within weeks prior to the nuns death.
