New Details Surface on Tumbleweed Nursing Home Neglect

KMAC 28 is reporting new details on the nursing home responsible for the death of elderly man.

71 Willie Byers was found dead outside Tumbleweed nursing home after being exposed to 5 degree temperatures for hours.

New information shows that the week before Beyer’s death, another resident convinced staff that he wasn’t a resident at the home and was allowed to leave.

He was later found 140 miles away.

This is coupled with the fact that staff didn’t follow set procedures.

The facility has since added alarms on all doors and is implementing new policies.
