BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A lawsuit just filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court alleges that workers at Encore at Boca Raton are so incompetent or poorly trained that they let a man at the facility develop serious skin wounds, then sit in urine and fecal matter which exacerbated the problem.

The lawsuit claims that patient Albert Goodman’s care wasn’t just horrific, but a violation of Florida law.

“During Albert Goodman’s residence at The Encore At Boca Raton Rehabilitation and Nursing Center,” wrote attorneys, “the staff and employees failed to develop an adequate care plan and properly monitor and supervise the care and treatment provided to Albert Goodman in order to prevent him from suffering the development and deterioration of wounds and to prevent him from suffering the development and deterioration of malnutrition and weight loss.”

The suit claims that Encore violated Florida statute by neglecting to “provide adequate and appropriate healthcare and protective and support services,” failing to “prevent mental and physical abuse of Albert Goodman,” and failing to comply “with regulations for the operation of nursing homes promulgated by the Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services.”

Among specific care issues outlined in the suit: “failing to properly recognize the development and deterioration of wounds on Albert Goodman and failing to obtain treatment to prevent the worsening of such wounds,” and “failing to adequately clean Albert Goodman to prevent skin breakdown due to continual contact with feces and urine.”
