The family of Mary Virginia Schuller has just filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court against a long term care facility for, among other things, failing to honor her June 2014 POLST.
Administratively, CMS has already concluded that the facility violated Ms. Schuller’s rigths under Medicare/Medicaid Conditions of Participation. The civil damages claims are for:
- ELDER ABUSE & NEGLECT
- NEGLIGENT HIRING, SUPERVISION, & RETENTION
- VIOLATION OF RESIDENTS RIGHTS
- NEGLIGENT INFLICTION OF EMOTIONAL DISTRESS
- WRONGFUL DEATH
