While the care and well-being of the residents of nursing homes in California should always come before potential profits, some claim that one nursing home owner may have had his priorities backwards. Suspected nursing home neglect may have occurred in dozens of facilities that provide long-term care for the elderly. That man in question actually owns the company Brius Healthcare Services.
Brius Healthcare Services provides the largest number of nursing homes in the state of California. However, in a class action lawsuit, allegations of suspected abuse and neglect point to the claim that the various facilities were usually understaffed. Additionally, the suit alleges that 57 residents were admitted to a nursing home without being informed that the facility was already understaffed.
