BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — One patient was so poorly treated at ManorCare of Boca Raton that she deteriorated after developing sepsis and open wounds. Another patient at Encore of Boca Raton, a separate assisted living and rehabilitation facility, died after suffering respiratory failure and falls — both of which competent medical providers could have prevented. These are among the claims alleged in two separate lawsuits just filed in Palm Beach County.
ManorCare of Boca Raton, an assisted living and rehabilitation facility at 375 NW 51st Street in Boca, is accused of providing such horrific care to resident Harriet Greenfield that she developed sepsis and infections. She died on August 20th of 2020.
“As a direct result of Manorcare Health Service’s acts and omissions, Harriet Greenfield suffered the development and deterioration of wounds, suffered the development and deterioration of infections and sepsis, and deterioration of dehydration.”
The lawsuit also alleges that Manorcare employees, “failed to adequately clean Harriet Greenfield to prevent skin breakdown due to continual contact with feces and urine”
In a separate suit, Encore Rehabilitation and Nursing Center at 7300 Del Prado Circle South in Boca Raton, is accused of mistreating Evelyn Goodman who died in February of 2021. According to the suit “The staff at Encore and employees failed to develop an adequate care plan and property monitor and supervise the care and treatment provided to Evelyn Goodman, in order to prevent her from suffering the development and deterioration of respiratory failure and to prevent her from suffering falls and unexplained injuries.”
The suit also alleges that staffers were so incompetent that they couldn’t recognize significant changes in Goodman’s medical condition which should have led someone to seek help from doctors.
Both suits are filed by the law firm of Ford, Dean and Rotundo in North Miami Beach. They both seek in excess of the statutory minimum of $30,000. Both suits also allege that Encore and ManorCare are violating Florida healthcare statutes, rules and regulations.
