Nursing Home Litigation: Limitations Period: Alexander v. Amelia Manor Nursing Home, Inc., 924 So. 2d 409 (La. Ct. App. 2006)

Resident was in two different nursing homes and after her death, Plaintiff sued both of them. Each was dismissed and Plaintiff appealed. The action against the first nursing home was beyond the limitations period. Plaintiff’s discovery argument was rejected. The trial court’s dismissal of the second nursing home was also sustained since the only evidence Plaintiff offered of inadequate care was that the resident was gasping for breath when the plaintiff visited her. That was insufficient.
