Questions remain after nursing home death

By June 20, 2012Neglect

Doris Robbins was 80 years old when she passed away, but a report by Michigan state investigators has found that she could’ve possibly been saved.

Laurels of Sandy Creek Nursing Home in Wayland, Mich. was investigated for their assistance—or lack thereof—in Ms. Robbins’ time of need.

Robbins’ daughter Patricia Slomski was told by the facility that her mother passed away while sleeping, but Slomski felt something else was afoot. The state investigation proved her intuition correct.

According to the report, Robbins showed signs of distress at 10 a.m., and died at 3:45 p.m. During that time, no one called a doctor and no one performed CPR. Perhaps worst of all is that an ambulance was never called and no one informed the police of Robbins’ death.

Slomski now wants justice, according to Michigan’s Wood TV.

“It’s not just about my mother,” said Slomski, “Because there are people like her that have a face, that are in jeopardy when rules and regulations aren’t followed.”
