Abuse and Negligence at Casitas Care Center

Casitas Care Center, located in Granada Hills, has been charged with elder abuse, fraud, negligence and the alleged wrongful death of Mr. Klaus Warme, a 66-year-old resident of the facility who was suffering from debilitating dementia. The family suit claims that on September 11, 2005, the nursing home caused the death of Mr. Warme by responding too slowly and negligently when during dinner Mr. Warme began choking on some of his food. It is alleged that the nursing homeĆ¢€™s account of the incident is fraudulent because their course of action was inconsistent with standard medical emergency procedures and their reported timeline contradicted the timeline recorded by the Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics.
