Decomposed Body in Closet

Published on April 19th, 2020

A recent lawsuit alleges a Harlem nursing home allowed an elderly woman’s body to decompose for five days after her death. The lawsuit was filed by the daughter of the woman and alleges that staff at the Harlem Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation refused to call the morgue after the woman died and left her body in a storage closet.

The lawsuit alleges a supervisor claimed “it was not their job to contact the morgue. It was too much paperwork and too many questions to answer.” The lawsuit filed in Manhattan Federal Court seeks only $175,000 for emotional distress and other claims.
