Vt. nursing home sued in 2010 death

Posted: Updated:

BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont nursing home has been sued over the death of a patient in 2010.

The son of 84-year-old Dorothy Papero has sued the Crescent Manor Nursing Home in Bennington.

The lawsuit alleges that Papero entered Rodolpho Davalos' room and was told to "get out" before the 58-year-old man knocked her down. She suffered severe injuries and died two days later.

Police said Papero, who suffered from dementia, was known to wander about the home.

The complaint alleges the nursing home was negligent and asks for unspecified damages.

The Bennington Banner reports a lawyer representing the nursing home denying the claims.
