Plaintiffs alleged that the nursing home and its employees attempted to cover up Ms. Larson’s death, and this was vehemently denied by Defendants. Defendants attempted to resuscitate Ms. Larson and contacted 911, and there was no evidence of any attempt to cover up Ms. Larson’s death or the circumstances surrounding her death. Furthermore, there was no indication that the jury was “angered at the Nursing Home’s failure to conduct an adequate investigation … and the Nursing Home employ ees’ inconsistent stories regarding the events surrounding Mrs. Larson’s death.” In fact, the jury members reported that no one believed Ms. Larson died as a result of the lap belt, and it was demonstrated at trial that a person could be suspended from the lap belt for more than 17 minutes with no injury or death.
