MEREDITH — The death of a patient at Golden View Health Care Center on Wednesday night, which was reported to authorities, is being investigated by the New Hampshire Attorney General.
Although a senior assistant Attorney General has confirmed an investigation is underway, the office has not disclosed any specific information about the incident.
In a prepared statement, Robert Carey, an attorney representing Golden View, said that "The Golden View nursing home is cooperating fully with the Attorney General's investigation. The residents in its care are safe. Out of respect for its residents and the investigation, Golden View has no further comment at this time."
Officials of Golden View declined to respond to inquiries Friday.
WMUR-TV has reported that the family of the patient who died contacted the station, but declined to speak about the situation. The station also reported that the New Hampshire Medical Examiner confirmed that an autopsy is being conducted.
Golden View Health Care Center opened in 1974 and offers a continuum of care, including transitional care, assisted living, long-term care, memory support and respite care. The facility is overseen by the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services.
