Another California nursing home has received a AA citation, the most severe citation available under California law, and hit with a $100,000 fine in the death of a resident
A 58 year-old resident of Browning Manor Convalescent Hospital was fatally injured in June 2009 after a fall from his nursing home wheelchair. He rushed to the hospital with a fractured spine and brain injury; he died two days later.
Although the Kern County Coroner stated that the resident died from injuries he sustained while at the nursing home facility, Elizabeth Tyler, a nursing home representative, alleges that the man left the facility in good condition and was coherent.
