Garcia & Artigliere Representing Abuse Victim in Case Against Pomona Healthcare & Wellness Center, LLC
LONG BEACH, CA — August 16, 2019 — The Garcia & Artigliere legal team is representing the family of a senior citizen who died as a result of abuse and neglect by the staff of Pomona Healthcare & Wellness Center, LLC.
The victim was admitted to the facility after a long-term hospital stay. He required specialized care that his family could not provide, and was moved into the care center based on that need.
Approximately a year into his stay at Pomona Healthcare & Wellness Center, the patients suffered from a major stroke and was rendered immobile, unable to speak, and completely reliant on the assistance of the facility’s staff. His state left him especially vulnerable to bedsores, however, the ailment could have been avoided with proper care.
Due to the neglect of Pomona Healthcare & Wellness Center staff, the patient developed severe bedsores. Facility caregivers hid the victim’s condition from his family, who were not notified of the sores until they developed into Stage III severity. At this time, the patient was taken to Pomona Valley Hospital for respiratory issues. The hospital staff transferred him to their intensive care unit to treat the severe bedsores, but to no avail — the patient died as a result of his injuries.
Pomona Healthcare & Wellness Center violated the trust of this elderly man and his family by failing to provide the standard of care that was expected upon admission. The staff of the facility directly contributed to the victim’s death by ignoring his needs and subjecting him to neglectful conditions. Garcia & Artigliere is representing the family of the deceased in the pursuit of compensation for their pain, suffering, and financial distress.
