Nursing Home Faces 2 Lawsuits

After suffering a stroke, Elfriedel Sitzman filed a lawsuit against Devon Gables Health Care Center saying she was not given adequate care. The lawsuit says Sitzman did not get the assistance she needed to eat and plan her diet, and was at risk for malnutrition, weight loss and dehydration. Another lawsuit against Devon Gables in addition to negligence and abuse, accuses the nursing home of wrongful death. The family of Irma Smith, who was diabetic, says Devon Gables officials did not provide adequate care for Smith when she lived there during the summer of 2006. Smith died after falling and developing infections, including a pressure sore.
