A Nova Scotia woman says she's shocked her government never studied her mother's death after she was pushed by a male resident in a Annapolis Valley nursing home. Debbie Stultz-Giffin says her 87-year-old mother Dorothy died on March 1st, 2012 after a shove from a male resident which led to a serious fall, and later a blood clot. She says the incident shows more staff is required at nursing homes. (The death at Mountain Lea Lodge in Bridgetown was one of five around the province over the past eight years that a freedom of information request showed were never reported publicly. The Health Department says its investigators only became aware of the case after these reports emerged.)
