The Garcia Law Firm files action against Sunwest Management for “losing” a resident for over one month.

The Garcia Law Firm has filed a lawsuit against Sunwest Management and others relating to the operations of their Paragon Gardens skilled nursing facility in Mission Viejo. The complaint alleges that the Sunwest skilled nursing facility was routinely cited by the State of California’s Department of Health Services for being under staffed. That as the result of that chronic under staffing, on June 5, 2006, Troy Nelms, an Alzheimer’s resident, was quite literally lost by the facility and remains lost as of this date.

The complaint alleges that this chronic under staffing by the Sunwest facility was emblematic of the manner in which they operate their skilled nursing facilities endangering the lives of their residents.
