Rochester, NY - The family of a 92-year-old former resident of Blossom South Nursing and Rehabilitation Center has filed a lawsuit against owners of the Rochester nursing home, claiming that the elderly woman's right leg was amputated in December because the staff didn't properly treat her bone fracture....
"I think it's a terrible place that could allow this to happen," Boyd said Thursday at her attorney Van Henri White's office in Rochester.
The suit comes as Blossom South faces a $149,500 fine because of a 2005 Medicare inspection that found violations of state and federal regulations that put residents' health and safety in "immediate jeopardy." At the time of that inspection, the facility was known as Arbor Hill Care Center and was owned by GMR Living Centers. In 2006, the Compassionate Care Network took over the operations and renamed the nursing home.
