All you want is answers to some basic questions. You don’t want to play detective and you don’t want to have to keep asking the same questions over and over. You simply want to know how your mother died, and you want to hear all of the details even if some of them are painful.
How Are You Going to Get Answers?
If your mother died because of a medical condition that had her in the nursing home, then her doctor should be able to provide you with the cause of death and there should be little question in your mind as to what happened.
However, if your mother died because of a fall, because of malnutrition or dehydration, or because of bed sores in a nursing home, then the doctor may not have all of the information that you want. The doctor may be able to tell that it was the fall, lack of nutrition or water, or a bed sore that killed your mother—but the doctor may not be able to tell you why that condition occurred in the first place.
Instead, you may need answers from your mother’s doctor and:
- Nursing home staff
- Nursing home administrators
- Other nursing home residents
- An experienced lawyer
Together, all of these people may be able to help you understand what happened to your mom in her Louisville nursing home. However, it is important that you let your lawyer get you the information that you need so that you do not jeopardize your potential recovery.
