Yesterday we reported on a law suit filed by the Kosieradzki Smith Law Firm against the Ramsey County Care Center for the wrongful death of Theresa “Toots” Rotter.
Last night, Fox 9 News led its 10:00 pm broadcast featuring the law suit and Mark Kosieradzki. Fox 9 News reports, “The woman’s family is suing Ramsey County, which runs the Ramsey County Care Center. According to the lawsuit, a computer system that provides food serving instructions did not work on holidays, so staff gave Rotter hard food: holiday ham and potatoes au gratin.”
Fox 9 News interviewed Mark Kosieradzki regarding the neglect: “Really, [the computer system] doesn’t work on holidays. And they know this. So what they do, they do a work around it. They have a food auditor. But the problem is the food auditor doesn’t work on weekends. If you feed chunked food to a person with dysphasia, you might as well be feeding them rat poison.”
“Theresa Rotter’s not coming back. But maybe Theresa Rotter’s death could result in change in the system,” Kosieradzki told Fox 9 News.
