Man suing for wrongful death

February 11, 2003

Thomasville - A South Georgia man is suing for wrongful death after his mother died at an assisted living home.

The case is being heard by a jury at the Federal Courthouse in Thomasville. The plaintiff, John Gainous, claims his mother, Grace Harrison Gainous, died in April 2000 due to neglect at the Plantation Manor in Thomasville. Gainous lived there for two weeks, during that time she fell and later died.

Her son claims the home, when it was operated by Diversicare, failed to take care of her special needs.

The home is now under new management and staff.
