The Daily Globe has reported that a settlement has been reached regarding the salmonella outbreak at a nursing home in Michigan last year.

Keith Anderson of Newport Heights in Ironwood, filed a lawsuit against Lawrence, Laureen and John Kutz, the Villa Maria Health and Rehabilitation Center, Sky View Nursing Center and Lexington Insurance Company.

He claimed a salmonella bacteria spreading throughout the Sky View and Villa Maria nursing homes in Hurley was a ‘substantial factor in contributing to the illness, infection, and death of his mother.’

Anderson and Lexington Insurance Company reached a settlement on Sept. 27. The case was dismissed by Iron County Circuit Court Judge Patrick Madden and court documents were sealed, Ransanici said.
