Nursing home neglect lawsuit: Greed is not good, patients suffer p2

We are talking about a lawsuit filed by the New Mexico Attorney General's office. The suit accuses a multi-state nursing home chain of deliberately understaffing its care facilities in order to maximize its profits. That skewed staff-to-patient ratio is responsible for patients not receiving the appropriate care, according to the complaint.

It's an unusual approach. Another lawsuit in the news recently is more typical of claims against short- and long-term care facilities.

As with this case, the defendant operates nursing facilities in a number of states. The plaintiffs, however, are the family members of patients that died, allegedly as the result of substandard care.
