Nursing Home Abuse Caught on Camera

Our client, Phyllis Roland, struggled to breathe for almost 6 and a half minutes, due to the negligence and disregard of a certified nursing assistant at Avanté in Boca Raton, Florida. Surveillance showed the tube that helped Phyllis breathe was disconnected by the CNA, while the alarm blared. Due to her lack of action, Phyllis essentially suffocated for several minutes, causing plenty of damage that was dangerous to her health.

Phyllis, 58, was moved into the nursing home following a severe stroke that left her blind and unable to speak or move. Out of concern for her seemingly failing care, in which she developed ulcers, infections, bed sores, and more, Greg decided to put a camera into her room. This was unmistakably the right decision to make, as the video footage clearly shows the CNA walking away from a struggling Phyllis. Minutes later, a respiratory therapist walks into the shocking scene, and the CNA in question denies ever touching anything in the room at all.

As of now, our client has been moved to another facility where she is recovering from her sufferings at Avanté. Attorney Donald Fann, of our firm, is now fighting for Phyllis’ rights to protective and comprehensive nursing care. He passionately fought back against the nursing home’s dangerous and destructive actions, stating: “We’re seeking justice. They treated her like an animal.”
