Nursing Home Fined For Negligent Care Of Resident On Ventilator

Negligent Care Of Resident On VentilatorThe California Department of Pubic Health has imposed the maximum fine permitted under the law against Casa Bonita Convalescent Hospital in connection with the death of a ventilator dependent resident.

State regulators issued three citations against the facility for the 2007 death of the 90-year-old resident.

An investigation in the incident by state authorities determined poor care led to the woman’s death when staff at the facility intentionally disconnected the woman from a ventilator and shut-off a remote alarm to notify staff of problems with the machine.

Justia Lawyer Rating for Jonathan Rosenfeld

Client Reviews

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
