Nursing home death spurs lawsuit: Son says the facility’s actions led to death of mother, 97; attorney denies all accusations
San Luis Obispo, CA - A man whose mother died in a San Luis Obispo nursing home filed a lawsuit against the facility saying it caused his mother’s death by reducing staff to save money.
Jay Cameron filed the lawsuit against Compass Health, a local corporation that owns six local nursing homes, including Mission View Health Center at 1425 Woodside Drive in San Luis Obispo. The case was filed Dec. 12 and is scheduled to return to court April 14, according to court officials.
Cameron alleges the home committed elder abuse, fraud, wrongful death, negligence and violated patient rights. He is asking for an undetermined amount of money and reimbursement for attorneys’ fees.
