What Happened Inside Nursing Facility At 371 NW 51st Street?
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The death of a resident at Manor Care in Boca Raton is leading to a lawsuit just filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court. The suit alleges that care is so poor inside the facility that a resident’s skin was permitted to break down to the point of the resident dying.
Manor Care has not responded to the suit as of mid-day Thursday, October 6th. Attorneys for the plaintiff claim that Peter Ambrosio was so poorly cared for by Manor Care staff that he died.
From the lawsuit: “Ambrosio was admitted to the Defendants’ nursing home for care and supervision relating to ongoing medical conditions and cognitive changes 40. At all times material, RESIDENT was at risk for preventable injuries including but not limited to skin breakdown, falls, wandering, infection, malnutrition, and dehydration. During admission and at all times material, RESIDENT was vulnerable and unable to care for themselves and was dependent on facility staff for assistance in performing their activities of daily living.
RESIDENT required supervision and assistance with their day to day function from facility staff to remain safe and free from harm, abuse, and preventable injury. Defendants owed a duty to provide the reasonable care, supervision, and assistance that RESIDENT needed while RESIDENT resided at their facility.
Despite this, Defendants by and throggh their staff, negligently failed to provide the required reasonable care, supervision, and assistance to RESIDENT. As a result of these failures, RESIDENT suffered preventable injury.
