The death toll from last week's fatal fire at a western Sydney nursing home has risen to 10.

The latest victim is an 87-year-old man who died in hospital on Friday night reports the ABC.

Registered nurse Roger Dean, 35, has been charged with multiple counts of murder over the fire, which ripped through the Quakers Hill Nursing Home during the early hours of 18 November.

The bodies of three residents were found in the ashes of the building and another seven have since died in hospital.
