Is this the law that Debbie Dahmer is fighting to change?

Hello Carolyn Anderson! Yes it is. Here in Florida- FS 400.0238 Punitive Damages;Limitations. Been active since 2001. Trying to get the Punitive Damages removed from going to the Trust Fund that Helps Improve the Quality of Care in Nursing Homes. The Plaintiff should not be held responsible for this..The nursing home where my father was only suppose to stay 120 days and return home never did. They were evaluating meds he was on. He had run away from home and was baker-acted then put in a nursing home for further evaluation..It was a total nightmare...He was severely neglected that led to his death.. Miss and love him always..Will fight till the day I die. May He RIP
