Garcia & Artigliere Representing Victim of Medical Nursing Home Neglect
Garcia & Artigliere is representing an elderly woman who suffered from injuries caused by the actions of negligent nursing home staff.
The plaintiff and her guardian brought a case against the nursing home facility where she was previously staying based on claims of neglect, including pharmaceutical mistakes and an overall absence of proper care. The defendant is the facility, Centinela Skilled Nursing & Wellness Centre East, LLC. and their associated management.
The victim required dedicated attention because of a medical condition that affected her brain functionality, along with a high risk of suffering from fall injuries. The facility’s staff failed to provide her with the attention she needed and subjected her to health complications caused by a pharmaceutical error.
The staff of Centinela Skilled Nursing & Wellness Centre East unnecessarily prescribed the plaintiff Dilantin, an anti-seizure medication. Although her medical conditions did not include epilepsy, staff administered the medication to the victim and as a result, she suffered from the symptoms of overmedication. The staff continually provided the medication and refuted the concerns of the plaintiff’s family as her condition worsened. She was eventually transferred to Broman Hospital with life-threatening conditions and moved out of the nursing home. The plaintiff and her guardian, along with the Garcia & Artigliere team, are pursuing damages for the suffering caused by the facility’s negligence.
