Resident Froze to Death

Published on March 19th, 2020

An 89-year-old woman was found dead outside of Union Printers Home nursing home after she froze to death on a bench outside according to The El Paso County Coroner’s Office.

Margarita Sam’s family hired McDivitt Law Firm to look into her death.

“Oftentimes, these are absolutely avoidable. The injuries are avoidable, these deaths are avoidable,” Attorney David McDivitt said. “Were there protocols that weren’t followed? Were there procedures that were violated?” he said.

McDivitt said Sam’s family still can’t believe their loved one froze to death at a nursing home.

“People go into facilities like this so that they could have that support and that care provided to them, and to find out that they are allowed to freeze to death outside is alarming,” McDivitt said.

A lawsuit hasn’t been filed in the case.

The family wants to get answers, closure and be sure there is accountability. Most of all, they want justice.
