Family Sues Nursing Home Over Resident’s Fatal Fall

In October 2010, 89-year-old Carrie Delay, a resident of the Motion Picture & Television Fund’s nursing home in Woodland Hills, California, suffered a serious fall on a staircase in the facility.

Delay, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, was in a wheelchair at the time of the incident, which resulted in a spinal fracture and several other significant injuries. She died a week later, prompting her family to file a lawsuit against the facility alleging that it was negligent in its care for Alzheimer’s-stricken patients. Delay’s death was the latest in a string of troubling incidents at the facility in which residents with the deteriorating neurological condition have been seriously injured.
