Nicknamed “The Sunshine City,” St. Petersburg not only has beautiful beaches and a vibrant arts scene, but also holds a Guinness World Record for most consecutive days of sunshine. The climate and relatively low cost of living of this city located south of Tampa have made it a popular retirement destination; the city currently has a senior population of approximately 17.7% according to the United States Census. With a population of approximately 260,000 people, St Petersburg is the fifth most populated city in Florida, with a median age of 44.8.

St. Petersburg Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

Unfortunately, nursing home abuse in St. Petersburg is not uncommon. For example, take the case of Ruth Jones, a 77-year old woman who was a resident at Laurellwood Nursing Center in St. Petersburg. Ruth’s daughter actually volunteered at this St. Pete nursing home. Ms. Jones suffered from Alzheimer’s and required pain medication. In 2018, Ms. Jones’ daughter became ill and for a time, was unable to continue her volunteering efforts at Laurellwood Nursing Center. When she returned, other residents informed her that her mother had been crying all day and shouting for help at night. Later, Ms. Jones’ daughter found that her mother’s pain medication had been discontinued without her knowledge.

Laurellwood Nursing Center then allegedly pressed Ms. Jones’ daughter to find another doctor that could prescribe new pain medication. This resulted in a harrowing trip to another facility which ultimately did not have space to accommodate Ms. Jones. That facility recommended Ms. Jones be taken to a hospital emergency room where a bed sore was discovered. Ms. Jones eventually returned to Laurellwood Nursing Center, but moved to another facility two months later. Ms. Jones’ daughter learned that Laurellwood had run out of her mother’s pain medication a week before her discharge, but had not informed anyone of this shortage.

Nursing Home Negligence inside Pinellas County Facilities

Negligence inside Nursing Homes and Assisted Living FacilityAn even more egregious case occurred at Concordia Manor in St. Petersburg, where Purcell Wilson died allegedly as a result of medical neglect. Mr. Wilson was required to be fed via a tube in his stomach and was found unresponsive an hour after his feeding. The staff at Concordia Manor started CPR, but when emergency medics arrived, they found that the Concordia Manor staff had not cleared Mr. Wilson’s airway prior to commencing CPR. They eventually suctioned out three cups of fluid from his lungs. Mr. Wilson died as a result; it was later found that he was not in the proper position when fed, consequently aspirated the fluid which resulted in a fatal heart attack.

At Bay Point Nursing Pavilion in St. Petersburg, Sheila Smith was a 400lb patient who required two staff members to move her from her bed to a wheelchair. One day, allegedly, one staff member attempted to move Ms. Smith on her own, which resulted in Ms. Smith falling from the Hoyer lift, breaking her back, causing her lung to collapse, and causing Ms. Smith to lose a large volume of blood. Ms. Smith refused a blood transfusion on religious grounds and died a week later.

Although regulatory agencies such as the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) are responsible for monitoring nursing facilities like the ones listed above, AHCA warnings have been found to be inadequate to ensure the safety of Florida nursing home residents. As the cases above illustrate, diligence on the part of residents and their families are critical to prevent nursing home negligence and abuse.
