CLEARWATER — A former resident is suing the owner of a Largo nursing home, alleging insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries and wrongful death.
The Estate of Roland L. Bailey, by and through Sharon O. Bailey, his personal representative, filed a complaint July 10 in the Pleasants Circuit Court against Medinvest Company Limited Partnership, also know as MN Medinvest Company Limited Partnership, et al., alleging that they breached their duty to exercise reasonable care in its operation of the facility in accordance with the Florida statutes.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 2, 2017, Roland Bailey was admitted to Sabal Palms Health Care Center, the defendants' facility, for his daily needs and medical assistance. The suit claims he failed to receive proper care at the facility, causing his existing medical conditions to worsen to the point of becoming life-threatening. As a result, Roland Bailey suffered bodily injury that aggravated his previously existing condition and ultimately led to his death on March 18, 2017.
The plaintiff holds Medinvest Company Limited Partnership, et al. responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide a safe environment, failed to provide adequate and appropriate hygiene, and failed to monitor significant signs and symptoms of change in his condition.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury; and seeks a judgment for consequential damages, attorneys' fees, cost, prejudgment interest, and such other relief the court deems appropriate. The plaintiff is represented by Joel Elsea of Wilkes & McHugh, PA in St. Petersburg.
