The effects of the COVID-19 coronavirus have been tragic worldwide. Millions have died from the virus, and it has been especially deadly for those older than 65. The virus spreads so easily and quickly, especially in places with large groups, and so many older people in nursing homes have been particularly at risk. Sadly, coronavirus has devastated many nursing homes throughout the country.
Recently, a family brought a wrongful death claim against a Glendale nursing home after their loved one died from coronavirus. ABC 7 News reported that 77-year-old Ricardo Saldana contracted COVID-19 at the Glenhaven Healthcare nursing home and passed away because of the virus. Saldana’s children claim that the nursing home was negligent in handling the coronavirus outbreak.
