A Background on Genesis Healthcare
Genesis Healthcare is a massive, publicly traded corporation that is in the business of owning and operating nursing homes and assisted living facilities in more than 30 states. Genesis is one of the largest long term care companies in the U.S. and boasts annual revenues in the billions of dollars.
Genesis Operates Nursing Homes and ALF’s to Make Money
Like all for profit nursing home corporations, Genesis Healthcare is in the business of making money. The stock symbol, GENN, is bought and sold by investors based on the company’s profits. The way nursing homes and assisted living facilities make money is simple. With an increased census (number of residents in the building), revenue increases. By increasing revenue and decreasing overhead, the company becomes more profitable.
The Pitfalls of a For-Profit Nursing Home Industry
More Residents = More Money
Empty facilities make no money. For this reason, Genesis Healthcare employs top notch salespeople who are skilled at encouraging families to place their loved one inside a Genesis facility. This too is common in the long term care industry.
Unfortunately, the promises made during the initial sales pitch do not always match the actual care provided to the resident. This is when families seek out a nursing home attorney to rectify a mistake that the facility may have committed.
Lower Staff Numbers = Lower Overhead
The largest expense in any nursing home is labor. Paying nurses, LPN’s, CNA’s and aides is by far the biggest cost on the budget. For this reason, for-profit facilities often keep staff numbers at a bare minimum.
All nursing home chains monitor their overhead and keep their facilities on a tight budget. Sometimes, when we investigate lawsuits against Genesis nursing homes and other facility chains, we find that there was not enough staff to care for the residents during the subject time period when our client was injured.
Understaffed Nursing Homes Have More Incidents of Falls, Pressure Sores, and Accidents
Numerous studies have shown that lower staff numbers lead to neglect-related injuries. If a facility accepts lots of high acuity residents, and provides low staff numbers, this is a recipe for disaster. There are simply not enough eyes and hands to help the high-needs residents. If you feel that your loved one’s facility was understaffed, that might be the root cause of the problems inside the nursing home.
To be clear, we are not suggesting that all Genesis nursing homes are understaffed. In fact, we are not suggesting any Genesis nursing homes are short-staffed. Facility staffing numbers must be adjusted based on the residents’ acuity level, which is always changing based on who lives in the facility that week. We are merely pointing out that, when we sue for-profit nursing home chains and conduct a staffing analysis, we oftentimes find the facility lacked sufficient staff numbers.
Recognizing Indicators of Abuse and Neglect Inside a Genesis Facility
- Bedsores, pressure ulcers or decubitus ulcers.
- Falls resulting in broken bones.
- Unexplained injuries, like undocumented fractures and brain bleeds.
- Rapid weight loss.
- Dehydration and malnutrition.
- Wrongful death.

At Senior Justice Law Firm, nursing home neglect cases are all that we do. We are one of the few law firms in the nation that narrowly focus on this sub-specialty.

*The above does not mean your loved one would be in harm at this facility. Each facility gets inspected often. Almost all facilities have deficiencies. Many face civil lawsuits.

What is My Genesis Nursing Home Lawsuit Worth?
There is no way to accurately predict the value of a nursing home injury or wrongful death case without learning more of the facts.
Factors that may increase the value of your case against Genesis are:
- A relatively healthy victim;
- Reckless conduct that may rise to the level of punitive damages;
- A history of bad conduct that was ignored by facility management and Genesis;
- A large amount of related medical bills; and,
- A close knit family that visited the resident often.
Factors that may decrease your Genesis lawsuit value:
- A resident with lots of comorbidities or a short lifespan;
- Non-compliance with the care plan or doctor’s orders;
- The possibility that the injury was related to a naturally occurring disease process, not negligence;
- A lack of supportive medical documents or testimony; and,
- An uninvolved family that did not visit the resident.
