$300,000 award set in bed-sore case

An Allegheny County jury awarded $300,000 to the estate of a former resident of a Squirrel Hill nursing home related to damage stemming from bed sores.
Jeffrey Green of the North Side filed a lawsuit in 2009 on behalf of his mother, Dolly Brown, a former resident of The Commons at Squirrel Hill. Brown, 72, died from unrelated causes.
Green's attorney, argued that the nursing home was responsible for the bed sores, which caused her pain.
Reports said the company would appeal the jury decision.
