DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) – A lawsuit has just been filed against Lake View Care Center in Delray Beach alleges workers were so incompetent and negligent that their actions resulted in the death of a man.
Arnold Schaub, according to the lawsuit, developed sepsis, was dehydrated, malnourished, suffered from infections and respiratory failure before his death at the facility. The lawsuit, filed by a family member, alleges that Lake View Care Center staff members “failed to develop, implement and maintain adequate and appropriate protection and support services (plan) for Mr. Schaub”.
The lawsuit further alleges that Lake View Care Center “failed to properly notify Arnold Schaub’s family and physicians of significant changes in his medical condition, such as the development and deterioration of infections and sepsis and the development of respiratory failure”.
The workers, the suit alleges, also failed to take and keep accurate records for Mr. Schaub’s care.
Mr. Schaub died on May 1, 2020. The lawsuit seeks to exceed the $30,000 legal minimum required to file a case in Palm Beach County Circuit Court. Lake View had not filed a response to the lawsuit as of early Tuesday, May 10, 2022. The Schaub family is represented by attorney William Dean of Ford, Dean and Rotundo in North Miami Beach.
