WHEC reported that Sodus Rehabilitation and Nursing Center is under investigation after a man reported finding his father dead in bed. Dave Tuper tells WHEC-TV in Rochester that his 80-year-old father Wayne suffered from dementia and his family decided in September to take him to the Sodus nursing home.
The son went to visit his father at the nursing home and found him dead in his bed. Tuper says he alerted the nursing staff and was told that they already knew he had passed away but hadn’t notified his family.
The son filed a complaint with the state Department of Health, which has launched an investigation.
The father’s death certificate says he died from cardiac arrest.
