A Montgomery County man entered a local nursing facility in need of rehabilitation. Instead, within just a few weeks, he was neglected, found dehydrated, suffered bedsores, and ultimately passed away. The facility, which garnered a 1-star rating (Medicare’s lowest possible score), had been repeatedly cited by state regulators for short-staffing, failing to prevent bedsores, and for not following doctors’ orders.
This troubled facility was one of hundreds of facilities owned by a billion-dollar real estate firm, being operated by individuals with no medical expertise. MSW has filed suit against the owners, operators and managers of this facility in an effort to obtain justice this local family.
