DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A woman who was supposed to be supervised, cared for, and watched at Lakeview Care Center on Linton Boulevard in Delray Beach fell to the ground with such force that she sustained a permanent brain injury. That’s the claim in the a lawsuit just filed against the facility.

Allene Williams, 77, was admitted to Lakeview Care Center Delray on April 14, 2021 as a nursing home resident. Within hours of her admission, according to the suit, Williams fell. Employees, according to attorneys, were incompetent and negligent.

“During the course of Allene Williams’ admission on or about April 14, 2021, Lakeview Care Center at Delray’s employees failed to render appropriate care, failed to follow doctor’s orders or to utilize appropriate safety devices and treatments or follow appropriate nursing protocols to prevent Allene Williams from suffering a fall where she sustained head injuries resulting in a subdural Hematoma and permanent brain injury.”

Adds the suit: ”Lakeview Care Center at Delray’s staff negligently failed to recognize, diagnose and treat Allene Williams’ condition in a timely and appropriate manner and/or refer her to a medical provider who could provide the appropriate care and treatment for Allene Williams’ condition.”

The suit alleges that the nursing home violated Florida Statute which requires ”adequate and appropriate healthcare and protective support services, her right to be treated courteously, fairly, and with the fullest measure of dignity; and her right to be free from mental and physical abuse.”

The suit seeks in excess of $30,000 which is the statutory minimum for filing in Palm Beach County Circuit Court. Williams is represented by Attorney Vidian Mallard of Mallard and Sharp in Miami. Lakeview Care Center at Delray had not filed a response to the suit as of 7:25 a.m. Sunday, July 17th, 2022.
