SanLuisObispo.com and Cal Coast Times Report on Lawsuit Against Country Care Convalescent Hospital

As published in SanLuisObispo.com and Cal Coast Times, Garcia & Artigliere filed a lawsuit against Country Care Convalescent Hospital for dependent adult abuse, and negligent hiring and supervision on behalf of Iris Schedler.

Schedler was admitted to Country Care Convalescent Hospital for short-term, preoperative care after she fell off a horse and broke her tibia. The lawsuit claims that a poorly trained employee of the facility applied a poisonous Fentanyl patch to her arm without a physician’s order causing Schedler to overdose. In response, Country Care Convalescent Hospital refused to notify appropriate persons and transfer Schedler to a hospital for life-saving efforts; instead, in a panic Schedler was required to arrange for her own immediate transfer.

This is the third lawsuit filed against the now closed Country Care Convalescent Hospital.
