Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. Releases Statement on Behalf of Family of Veteran who Died at VA Hospital

The family of the 66-year-old veteran, who died last year after a nurse mistakenly led doctors and other personnel to believe that the patient had a do-not-resuscitate order, has released a statement through attorney Randall M. Blau, of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C.

The family of the victim says they are thankful for the outpouring of support and would greatly appreciate privacy at this time.

The following is the full statement from the family through  wrongful death attorney Randall M. Blau :

“On behalf of our family, we would just like to thank everyone for the thoughts and concern expressed over the loss of our loved one. We are hopeful the results of the recent report from the Inspector General’s Office has brought to light the unacceptable and horrific care that our veterans are currently receiving in the veteran administration system.

"Although it is too late to save our family from this tragic loss, we can only hope that the investigation findings and pursuit of our claim will result in immediate changes to prevent any additional and unnecessary loss of life.”

The family has asked all inquiries, and other communications, be directed to Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C., a Michigan-based personal injury and accident law firm.
