An Indiana medical malpractice case that was originally dismissed by a trial court has now been turned into a Fort Wayne wrongful death case.

According to The Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette, a Fort Wayne wrongful death case has been filed against a Fort Wayne nursing home for the neglect and death of a woman who was supposed to be recovering from surgery on her femur.

The Fort Wayne wrongful death suit claims that the Indiana woman tore her surgical incision because she was given a wheelchair that was too small, suffered from ulcers because she was left on a bed pan for six hours, and after a dialysis treatment was found in her room lying in her own pool of blood.

A possible trial will determine the outcome of the Indiana wrongful death suit.
