Nursing home faces lawsuit in wake of resident deathPosted: Updated:
A nursing home in Orange County is now facing some legal trouble after the death of an elderly resident.
The families of two residents at Sapphire Nursing Home in Goshen, including one who died, have filed a lawsuit against the facility.
The suit claims the residents were victimized by unsafe and inadequate care due to extreme short staffing. These issues with the facility were cited earlier this year by the state.
A representative for the nursing home declined to comment on the specific suit, but said they're now in full compliance with state and federal requirements.
