The family of a man in is his 80's has served notice that they intend to sue a senior's residence in Trois-Rivières after the man spent four days on the floor of his room and died later in hospital.
Denis Aubry lived in Le Coin St-Paul, a retirement home for autonomous and semi-autonomous seniors.
Late last month he fell and was unable to get up.
He lay there alone for four days.
Someone finally went to check on him, after a local pharmacy called the home to say that they were unable to contact Aubry.
He was taken to hospital, but died of complications July 29th, seven days after he fell.
The Journal de Montreal reports that his daughter says her father told her that he had screamed for help for days, but no one heard his calls.
