Manslaughter charges filed in case of nursing home neglect

The death of an elderly woman in a New York nursing home has resulted in manslaughter charges for a nurse's aide in a case of nursing home negligence. It is reported that the aide dropped the 86-year-old woman during a transfer into her bed from a wheelchair, causing the woman to fall to the floor. The patient suffered serious injuries, including fractures to her leg and spine, which allegedly caused her death.

This puts patients at risk for complications as a result of this form of doctor error.
