An article published in the Denver Post this past Sunday, written by Megan Quinn, discusses a history of staffing and regulatory problems at Broomfield Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation, a nursing home located in Broomfield, Colorado.
According to the article, a Broomfield nursing home employee is accused of assaulting two patients in the past two months at the facility, where there is also reportedly high staff turnover and low quality ratings received by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
The article further discusses a pending wrongful death lawsuit that has been filed by the Law Offices of JM Reinan, PC concerning the death of a former Broomfield nursing home resident, Marlene Politzer. As the article reports, the wrongful death lawsuit alleges that Ms. Politzer died because of poor care she received at the Broomfield nursing home and that the Broomfield nursing home allowed a physician with a long history of malpractice lawsuits and complaints to be assigned as her primary doctor at the facility. The lawsuit alleges that, consistent with previous lawsuits and complaints to the Colorado Board of Medical Examiners against this physician, Ms. Politzer was not timely or properly treated by the physician, thus resulting in her premature and wrongful death.
