Inadequate care at a Charleston, West Virginia nursing home lead to the death of an 87 year old woman, which led to a $90 million jury verdict that was upheld by a judge's ruling last week. Dorothy Douglas was admitted to the nursing home, Heartland of Charleston, suffering from Alzheimer's and other ailments but was able to walk and speak well; after three weeks she was dehydrated and in a wheelchair. She died shortly after being transferred to another facility.
