Nursing Home Abuse Firm Garcia & Artigliere Represents Client Who Suffered Neglect at Golden Hill Subacute & Rehabilitation Center
LONG BEACH, California – Bringing over 100 years of combined legal experience, Long Beach law firm Garcia & Artigliere takes on cases involving serious elder abuse and neglect. Recently, the firm has taken on a client who alleges that she suffered dependent adult abuse at Golden Hill Subacute & Rehabilitation Center, after sustaining stage IV pressure sore injuries, urinary tract infections, and other serious injuries in their care.
The client, who has Parkinson’s disease and is unable to move without the aid of a wheelchair, was admitted to the Golden Hill facility from April 2018 to March 2019. During that time period, she sustained an entirely avoidable stage IV pressure sore on her buttocks and nether regions, leaving her at risk of major infections. As a result of these infections, she endured substantial pain and emotional trauma.
The staff also failed to keep her clean and sanitary and ignored the pressure sore development until it a three by five inch open wound. To compound this neglect, the facility failed to contact her family or legal representatives and even attempted to conceal several of her injuries. Because the staff response was so delayed, the client was almost unable to talk, eat, or even walk, and was forced to pay over $20,000 in bills for emergency medical treatment.
Under Title 22 of the California Code of Regulations, the facility and its staff acted in a negligent and wrongful manner towards this patient. The team at Garcia & Artigliere is pursuing maximum damages on her behalf, with the hope of holding Golden Hill Subacute & Rehabilitation Center accountable for these offenses. If you or your loved one experienced similar injuries at this facility, the partners at Garcia & Artigliere invite you to come forward and contact their firm for more information.
