Our firm represents the family of an Arkansas man who suffered at the hands of a staff that was not equipped to care for him at the White Hall Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, located in White Hall, Arkansas. The Complaint, filed in the Circuit Court of Jefferson County, Arkansas, alleges that Defendants, including Central Arkansas Nursing Centers, Inc., Nursing Consultants, Inc., and Park Health Care, LLC, misrepresented the skill and number of the facility’s nursing staff in order to qualify for government funding.
The Defendants held themselves out to the Arkansas Department of Human Services (DHS) and to the public at large as being properly staffed, supervised and equipped to meet patient needs with a skilled nursing, rehabilitative and medical support staff. This was done in an effort to have government-funded patients placed at the nursing facility. But the Defendants actually hired and retained unqualified and untrained nursing staff and the facility was grossly understaffed. As a result, the facility was unable to provide even the minimum standard of care to the weak and vulnerable residents. Frank Mayweathers developed severe bedsores from the neglect during his stay at the facility and he suffered emotional and physical trauma as his health deteriorated before his death.
It is absolutely shameful that a facility having the responsibility to care for the most vulnerable folks would put profits first and knowingly place their patients’ health and safety in jeopardy. Mr. Mayweathers endured pain, distress and humiliation as he was neglected and virtually ignored while at the facility. The Complaint alleges both negligence and violations of the Arkansas Long Term Care Residents’ Rights Statute. J.P. Sawyer from our firm and Robert Sexton from the firm of Rainwater, Holt & Sexton, P.A., located in Little Rock, will handle this case.
