Family of nursing home patient wins wrongful death suit

The family of a 90-year-old nursing home patient who died falling down a staircase at a nursing home in Woodland Hills recently won a wrongful death lawsuit¬†against the nursing home’s owner,¬†the Motion Picture & Television Fund (MPTF). An investigation by the California Department of Public Health resulted in an $80,000 fine against the MPTF.

The victim–an Alzheimer’s patient–was tied into her wheelchair when she fell down a stairwell at her nursing home in October 2010. The family’s case was taken to the Los Angeles Superior Court, which found that the fund had “failed to ensure an environment free of accident hazard with adequate supervision, leading to the death of a patient.”
