Neglect case filed against Harborview

Published on September 11th, 2009

The Southeast Texas Record had an article about a recent case filed against a nursing home for causing the death of a resident.  Lynda Calloway accuses Harborview Care Center of improperly looking after Doris Beard who suffered from neglect that caused bedsores, dehydration, and malnutrition.  She was a resident for 6 months.   Calloway contends that Harborview repeatedly violated the law by failing to assure and provide sufficient nursing care to Beard.  Nutrition and hydration are essential for preventing bedsores.  necessary staff is needed to turn and reposition residents and to change bandages to prevent infection.

"The defendant failed to implement proper infection control procedures, failed to intervene with appropriate medication, failed to treat Doris Beard for pain, and failed to keep Doris Beard’s family of changes in Doris Beard’s condition," the suit says.

"The defendant knowingly and willfully made numerous material representations to the plaintiff, upon which misrepresentations the plaintiff relied upon to their detriment.

"Material misrepresentations were made by the defendant with the intent to induce reliance thereon by the plaintiff."

"The defendant acted with conscious indifference and endangered Doris Beard’s rights, safety, and welfare," the suit says.
