County, Hudson named in wrongful death lawsuit

Union County and Hudson Memorial Nursing Home have been named in a wrongful death lawsuit which claims failing treatment by the latter resulted in pain, loss of dignity and death for a resident.

According to the complaint, these failings in 2008, 2009 and 2010 “accelerated the deterioration of [the resident's] health and physical condition and resulted in physical and emotion injuries and death.”

Those failings, addressed in the complaint, include falls, bed sores, poorly regulated diet and medication errors, amid much more.

Bill Yutzey, Hudson administrator, refrained from comment and a representative of Wilks & McHugh P.A., the Little Rock firm handling the case for the plaintiff, said the group’s attorneys generally don’t comment on pending litigation.

More to come in Wednesday’s News-Times including comments from Union County Judge Mike Loftin on recent controversy during Union County Quorum Court about the county’s ownership of the building and property on which the nursing home sits.
