Understaffing in Nursing HomesOne of the nation’s largest nursing home chains suffered a legal setback that could eventually send ripples throughout the nursing care community at large. Despite aggressive attempts to have a lawsuit thrown out alleging that the systemic understaffing of facilities has resulted in numerous deaths and the pain and suffering of countless patients under the company’s care, a judge denied the motion to dismiss the case. The nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys of Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers are monitoring this case closely because its result could have an influence on many related cases in the future.

In a Stroke of Irony, Defendants Claim Lawsuit is due to Greed and Opportunism

Preferred Care Partners Management Group is playing the role of victim by alleging that New Mexico’s attorney general is unfairly targeting the company for abuses committed at facilities prior to their assimilation into the Preferred Care Partners Management Group organization. State Attorney General Hector Balderas has offered the counterpoint that elderly patients living in New Mexico have suffered at the hands of greedy nursing corporations that place profits over people and safety for far too long and that Preferred Care Partners should be culpable for any of its businesses despite their dates of acquisition.

Maggots, Sores, Allegations of NeglectA somewhat unusual news story was forwarded to me over the weekend that involved police intervention in a case involving a severely neglected nursing home patient.  Apparently, staff at a Via Christi Hospital (Kansas) called police after a nursing home patient was taken to their hospital for care.

Immediately after they began treating the man, it was readily apparent that that man was not in good condition as hospital staff noticed maggots and open sores on his feet when they removed his shoes.  According the the news report, police have initiated an investigation into the care provided at the Desert Health Group facility.

Police involvement?
