Elder Abuse Lawsuit Filed

Malnutrition and dehydration of an elderly woman has caused a lawsuit to be filed against a Greenbrier County nursing home. The lawsuit said Eloise Gates, 84, entered the nursing home with significantly diminished cognitive skills, due to dementia, and “no longer had the conscious awareness that she had been the victim of nursing home negligence.” The suit claims Gates suffered from “infections, falls, subdermal hematomas, malnutrition, dehydration and overall functional decline beyond the normal aging process” at the hands of her caregivers.
