Lawsuit filed against northeast Kansas nursing home over COVID-19 death

By the Associated Press:

The family of an 88-year-old man who died in a COVID-19 outbreak at a suburban Kansas City nursing home has sued.

The wrongful death suit that was filed Monday on behalf of the family of Gordan Grohman alleges that the staff at Brighton Gardens in Prairie Village, Kansas, failed to separate residents with COVID-19 symptoms from those without the virus.

Grohman died May 1.

It’s the first such suit against the facility, where there have been 76 positive cases and 14 deaths.
