CARLISLE, Ky. (AP) - The estate of a nursing home resident who choked to death is accusing employees of falsifying documents.  The Cabinet for Health and Family Services issued a citation to the Johnson Mathers Nursing Home in Carlisle on May 10 regarding the 2010 accident.  Both the citation and the suit claim that nurse Joyce Fulton saw Lorrine Wheeler choking on food but left her alone and spent 15 to 20 minutes cleaning a dirty suction machine, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.

It's been 11 months since Johnson Mathers Nursing Home in Carlisle received the state's most serious regulatory citation in the May 2009 death of James "Ronnie" Duncan.

Duncan's brother Lloyd Duncan has filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Lexington.  John Hafner, the Lexington attorney representing the estate of Ronnie Duncan, said the case will set a precedent in the state regarding a resident's right to sue under the Federal Nursing Home Reform Act. Under the act, patients are afforded the right to the highest level of care and services.

The lawsuit asks for $30 million in damages for Duncan's suffering and to deter nursing home officials "from engaging in unlawful conduct."
