BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The often sued Encore Boca Raton Rehabilitation and Nursing center is facing another suit. This time, the family of Francisco Piedra alleges that incompetent workers mismanaged care, leading to debilitating falls and humiliation — all in a place where seniors are supposed to be treated carefully with respect and dignity.

From the lawsuit just filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court: “During FRANCISCO PIEDRA’s residency at The Encore at Boca Raton Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, the staff and employees breached that duty by failing to develop an adequate care plan and properly monitor and supervise the care and treatment provided to FRANCISCO PIEDRA in order to prevent him from suffering falls, despite the fact that he was known to be at high risk for falling and to timely arrange for transport to the hospital when his condition significantly deteriorated.”

The suit, which seeks in excess of the statutory minimum of $50,000, alleges that Encore management did nothing to ensure that only trained workers were assigned to patient care. Also from the suit:

“As a direct result of ENCORE’s acts and omissions, FRANCISCO PIEDRA suffered multiple falls with traumatic injuries. (In addition,) as a direct and proximate result of the failure of the Defendant to comply with the requirements of Florida Statute $400, and to provide adequate and appropriate and protective support services, FRANCISCO PIEDRA 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; and medical, hospital and nursing expenses.”

Mr. Piedra and his family are represented by the law firm of Ford, Dean, and Rotundo in North Miami Beach. Encore had not filed a response to the suit with the Clerk of Court as of 1 p.m. on Thursday. A court date is pending.
