San Dimas nursing home fined $121k in patient death Lori Consalvo, Staff Writer Created: 01/21/2009 03:43:12 PM PST SAN DIMAS - A nursing home in Los Angeles County has been fined $121,000 after the death of a patient whose ventilator became disconnected. State regulators announced Tuesday the Casa Bonita Convalescent Hospital in San Dimas was issued three citations related to the death of a 90-year-old woman in October 2007. One of the citations, which carries a $100,000 fine, was the stiffest penalty allowed under state law. The California Department of Public Health says poor care at the nursing home led to the resident's death. Investigators say the remote alarm was turned off and did not alert staff when the ventilator became disconnected. But representatives for Casa Bonita said there is some disagreement about what happened. Elizabeth Tyler, a lawyer for the 106-bed facility, said the facility disputes the state's claim that poor care caused the death. She also said there is information that the Department of Public Health "may have inadvertently overlooked or not been aware of when they made this decision." "They initially investigated and cleared the home but 15 months later they issued the citations that came with the fines," Tyler said. The nursing home will appeal the fines in Superior Court and ask for an informal administrative hearing "in hopes we can sit down with the department and present additional information," Tyler said. If that doesn't work, the nursing home will file a lawsuit. The Advertisement Quantcast process could take several years. The citations were issued Dec. 19 and are already on the facility's record, even though the home has issued an appeal. Tyler said the employees at the facility are good, hardworking people who shouldn't be judged on the basis of this incident. "It still has to be shown and proven that these allegations are correct," she said. The Associated Press contributed to this report.
