A Missoula family has settled its lawsuit against two nursing homes. The amount of the settlement is confidential. Riverside Health Care Center and the Village Health Care Center were the two nursing homes involved in the lawsuit. Family members of the late Ralph Seewald alleged that the nursing homes acted negligently when they failed to provide adequate health care for the 87-year-old man, who died in November 2005 of a blood infection. Mr. Seewald fell and fractured his neck during a transfer from his wheelchair, an accident that left him bedridden. He then developed severe pressure ulcers that worsened over a period of months, and led to a fatal case of gangrene in his leg. Both the wheelchair transfer and the treatment of his bedsores were inadequate and breached the standard of care in such cases. Rob Kornfield, a Kirkland, Wash. lawyer, represented the Plaintiff and did a good job.
