The family of a man who died four years at a Georgia nursing home have been awarded $1.25 million after a DeKalb County jury concluded that nursing home neglect was responsible for the man’s death. Tucker Nursing Center allegedly provided inadequate care to the man when he was admitted in 2002 at the age of 67. Nine months later, he had to be hospitalized for a bedsore that infected his left buttock to the bone, said his attorney, and ultimately put him in a death spiral. He died in June 2004.
