Nursing Home Sued Over Death

A wrongful death lawsuit was filed Monday against a Menomonee Falls nursing home, contending that Dorismae Burgardt died from complications caused by broken bones in both legs that she suffered during a fall that was not properly reported. A nurse at the Care Center used improper techniques to shower Burgardt which caused her to fall and nothing was reported to a registered nurse or the woman’s physician until bruises were noticed. "Dorismae had a strong mind but a weak body. She needed assistance to move. It is insulting and a form of elder abuse to deny that she was dropped and fail to get her the care that could have saved her life," said attorney Jay Urban.
