A class action lawsuit for substandard nursing home care was filed in Orange County Superior Court against S&F Management Company, Inc.; S&F Management Company, LLC; Windsor Healthcare Management, Inc.; and its 15 skilled nursing care facilities around the state of California.
Stephen Garcia, attorney for the plaintiff, alleges in the complaint that Windsor promotes itself in a misleading way, claiming to provide superior care to the elderly, when in fact that Windsor-owned facilities have a substandard track record.
“The Windsor facilities make great claims, but they don’t deliver. In fact, I believe they are an elder abuse case in the making,” says Garcia. “We know they aren’t providing what they promise — excellent care — because the 15 facilities have a long record with the California Department of Health Services of repeatedly receiving citations of deficiencies that found the facilities consistently provided their residents substandard care and violated their rights.”
The California nursing facilities named identified in the lawsuit are:
Windsor Gardens Convalescent Center of Anaheim
Windsor Palms Care Center of Artesia
Windsor Manor Rehabilitation Center of Concord
Windsor Park Center of Fremont
Windsor Gardens Care Center of Fullerton
Windsor Gardens Convalescent Center of Hawthorne
Windsor Gardens Care Center of Hayward
