DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — ManorCare of Delray Beach is facing a civil lawsuit following the death of a patient. The family of the deceased claims that employees were negligent in their care for the man who fell multiple times and ultimately died.
The suit claims that ManorCare knew patient Jacob Boyer had a history of falls and was a fall risk. But employees, according to the suit, couldn’t have cared less. Boyer, according to the lawsuit, fell multiple times at the facility and died on February 4th, 2021.
From the lawsuit obtained by BocaNewsNow.com, with editing for clarity:
“On or around May 6, 2020, JACOB BOYER was admitted to ManorCare Delray Beach as a noted fall risk.
Upon admission and at all times thereafter, JACOB BOYER required extensive supervision and / or assistance with activities of daily living (ADLS), including but not limited to ambulation, toileting, transferring, bathing, and dressing, among other.”
“JACOB BOYER , now deceased, was known to be at-risk for falls, and required special fall precautions and supervision for his safety. Despite his high fall risk classification, pre fall precautions were not put in place. During his residency at ManorCare Delray Beach, JACOB BOYER suffered multiple preventable falls.”
“JACOB BOYER also needed assistance with eating and drinking at all times material. Proper assistance was not given at the facility, causing weight loss, dehydration and malnutrition. JACOB BOYER’s underlying health conditions, both physical and mental, were greatly compromised. JACOB BOYER died shortly thereafter on or around February 4, 2021.”
The lawsuit seeks in excess of $30,000, the statutory minimum for filing in Palm Beach County Circuit Court. There was no immediate response from ManorCare, its parent company or others named in the suit. Read the complete filing, below. If it does not appear, access the filing here.
The Boyer family is being represented by attorney David Brevda of Senior Justice Law Firm.
