16 Extendicare Skilled Nursing Facilities Named In Wash. Lawsuit

SEATTLE, Oct. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A revised complaint with additional allegations in the class action lawsuit against skilled nursing facility Extendicare and its 16 facilities in the state of Washington [see list by city at end of release] was just filed (Case #2:08-cv-01332-JCC) in United States District Court, Western Washington Division, in Seattle.

The original complaint (Case #08-2-28645-2KNT), filed by The Garcia Law Firm of Long Beach, Calif., and Stritmatter, Kessler, Whelan, Coluccio of Seattle, Wash., in King County Superior Court in August 2008, alleges that Extendicare tells the public and prospective clients that it is operated in such a way that it meets the needs of its elderly and vulnerable adult residents by providing a certain standard of care. The complaint contends that in spite of the claims made on Extendicare's websites and in its brochures and in other promotional materials, it is, in fact, cheating its residents and misrepresenting itself to prospective residents.

The suit was filed on behalf of Howard Steele as the personal representative for the estate of Lee Ann Steele and on behalf of all Washington citizens who resided in one of the company's Washington facilities from July 1, 2004 through July 1, 2008.

"As people heard of the lawsuit, we started getting calls from family members and former Extendicare staff members, each with their own story of how bad their experience was with the company," says plaintiff attorney Kevin Coluccio of Stritmatter, Kessler, Whelan, Coluccio. "These calls, combined with our own investigation, revealed a whole host of problems that we hadn't even expected."

New allegations include Extendicare's "Green Flag Policy" or the "24/7 Extendicare Admission Policy." This policy is comprised of three lists: "Green Flag," "Yellow Flag," and "Red Flag." Various medical conditions are attributed to each
