If an in house General Practitioner of a nursing home decides not to take recommendation from an outside specialist is that grounds for a "Will full Neglect" lawsuit?

In brief: Somewhat complicated

As it is very much dependent on what the recommendations were and in regards to what type of condition the person is suffering from. There are times where a primary care doctor will choose not to go forth with a specialist recommendations for any number of reasons.
This requires a more detailed review to get any appreciable understanding of the situation at hand.
