David Brafford of Putnam County, West Virginia, as filed a lawsuit against Teays Valley Center and Genesis Healthcare alleging negligence.

According to the lawsuit, Brafford’s mother Mary, was admitted to the nursing home in July 2009 for rehabilitation. While a resident, she suffered numerous falls, including one which caused her to fracture her left hip.

The lawsuit alleges that the nursing home failed to provide a safe environment and failed to implement fall prevention measures. “Ms. Brafford suffered from systemic abuse and neglect causing significant injuries, [which] ultimately led or contributed to her death on or about Jan. 16, 2011,” the suit alleges.

The Charleston Gazette reports that Brafford is seeking damages for his mothers pain and suffering, as well as her mental and emotional distress. The lawsuit also seeks damages for the cost of medical care and burial and funeral expenses as well as punitive damages.
