Bad nursing homes generally have a pattern of poor care. There will always be isolated incidents at even the most well staffed facilities. However, when repeated incidents occur within a brief period of time there are usually deeper problem with the facility.
Case in point, two recent lawsuits were filed against the Devon Gables Health Care Center. The first lawsuit involves, Elfriedel Sitzman, a female resident who was not give adequate care following a stroke. The lawsuit claims that Sitzman fell and broke her arm in a fall during her stay at the facility from November through December, 2007.
