Family of man killed by nursing home sues facility

 A nurse who fatally shot a patient at the Abington Manor nursing home exhibited erratic behavior in the days before the homicide, but the facility failed to take action to address the situation, the son of the victim says in a lawsuit.
Aimee Larkin, a licensed practical nurse, previously brought a handgun into the nursing home and was acting “strange” shortly before she shot and killed resident Howard Kinney on Nov. 4, 2013. Management at the facility failed to identify that she was emotionally unfit and posed an increased risk to patients, according to the lawsuit filed Friday in Lackawanna County Court.Family of man killed by nursing home worker sues facility - News - The Times-Tribune:
