Clark County Nursing Home To Pay $625,000 In Wrongful Death Settlement

The Clark County Nursing Home has reached a settlement with the family of a deceased resident that may have set the record for largest lawsuit agreement in Knox County court history.

On March 1 the family of Vivian Jane Roller received a $625,000 settlement from the nursing home in a wrongful death lawsuit that alleged multiple violations of state and federal regulations by the facility that ultimately resulted in Roller's untimely demise.

The lawsuit alleged that the Clark County Nursing Home violated physician's orders as well as state and federal regulations that required a "lap buddy" restraining device on Roller's wheelchair. The device is made to prevent falls from wheelchairs.

The suit claimed negligence by the staff of the nursing home led to Roller falling from her chair on October 28, 2000. She reportedly remained at the facility for more than eight hours before being transferred to a hospital for treatment. Roller died on November 15, 2000 as a result of the injuries she suffered in the fall.

"The family's wish is to improve care and the training of staff and staffing requirements at nursing homes so other families will not have to suffer the unnecessary loss of loved ones," said attorney Tim Dollar of Kansas City who represented the Roller family.
