Fayetteville, AR - A four-day civil trial scheduled to begin Monday was avoided after parties agreed to an out-of-court settlement in a case involving patient care at a Fayetteville nursing home.
Mona Casey, the guardian for James Casey, filed the lawsuit in 2005 against Rose Care Inc., KMJ Enterprises, Rochier Heights LLC, NWA Nursing Center LLC and Reliance Health Care Management Inc.
The plaintiff alleged that her husband suffered fractures, infections, bruises, skin tears and verbal abuse during his stay at the facility. She said he stayed at the nursing home for about 90 days before she was able to bring him home and care for him there.
