DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A woman allegedly suffered in pain — and was neglected — before dying at the Terrace of Delray Beach Nursing and Rehabilitation Center at 5430 Linton Blvd. The facility is now being sued.
The lawsuit, just filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court — and reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com — claims that Judith Camhi sustained infection, sepsis, and the development and deterioration of wounds during her time in the facility. She died on June 20th, 2022. Public records indicate she was 87 at the time of her death.
Attorneys allege that Terrace of Delray Beach failed to appropriately monitor Camhi, failed to develop an appropriate care plan, failed to recognize wounds, failed to turn and position Ms. Camhi regularly to prevent wounds, and failed to provide a proper mattress, bedding, and protective devices for Camhi.
“As a direct and proximate result of the failure of the Defendant to comply with the requirements of Florida Statute §400.022, and to provide adequate and appropriate and protective support services,” wrote attorneys in the complaint, “JUDITH ELLEN CAMHI suffered damages, including loss of dignity; humiliation; bodily injury; pain and suffering, disability, physical impairment; disfigurement; mental anguish, inconvenience; loss of capacity to enjoy life; discomfort; aggravation of existing diseases or physical defect; medical, hospital and nursing expenses.”
Camhi’s children seek in excess of $30,000 — the statutory minimum for filing in Palm Beach County Circuit Court. Read the complete lawsuit, below. The Terrace at Delray Beach had not responded to the suit through the Clerk’s office as of 6 a.m. Monday morning, December 12th.
