Mani Ellis & Layne Represents Resident of Dunbar Center Nursing Home
The West Virginia nursing home abuse attorneys at Mani Ellis & Layne are currently representing a client who received horrendous care while a resident at Dunbar Center - a nursing home and rehabilitation facility located in Dunbar, West Virginia. After working with experts to investigate the conditions and care provided by the facility, our legal team found alarming results.
Dunbar Center received a below-average rating from the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) in March of 2013 based on health inspections, nursing home staffing, and quality measures.
The facility has also received numerous violations from the Department of Health and Human Services:
- A total of 30 violations in 2013.
- Multiple "immediate jeopardy" violations, which are among the most serious violations for conditions that have caused or may cause serious injury or death to residents.
- More than $200,000 in fines for violations.
As our legal team fights on behalf of our client to ensure justice and fair compensation, we believe that other residents and families may have been affected by the poor care and conditions at Dunbar Center. This is why we are currently investigating cases from residents and their loved ones who may have been harmed by Dunbar Center.
Our attorneys have extensive experience handing cases involving nursing home abuse and neglect, including one recent case which we settled on behalf of our client against a facility for $1.75 million. We understand the elements of nursing home abuse lawsuits and we are passionate about protecting the rights of victims and their loved ones.
