WFLA had an article about the horrific neglect and abuse suffered by Willie Johnson at the hands of the caregivers at Habana Health Care Center owned and operated by Consulate Health Care. His daughter Tonya Baker said her elderly father is living in poor conditions and shared photos to prove it. “Not taking care of my dad, not feeding my dad, going in there finding my dad, wet Pampers, Depends, not being changed,” she said.
“My daddy’s not getting the care that he’s paying for to stay in that facility,” Baker told me. Baker has filed five complaints with the State’s Agency for Health Care Administration about the nursing home. Four out of five times, they found the nursing home violated its own rules or law. But despite the state’s involvement, Baker says problems persist.
“I also went in there and had them take my daddy’s air conditioning out the wall because he had a lot of mold in there, in the air conditioner and in the air conditioner wall,” explained Baker.
The photos include one where he has a busted lip. Baker said the facility told her he was punched by a roommate. Another photo shows her father with a gash on his forehead after a fall in the shower.
