New York State files a lawsuit against Western NY nursing home, citing ‘inhumane’ conditions

November 29, 2022 – The New York state attorney general’s office held a news conference announcing a lawsuit against the operators of a nursing home in Orleans County. The lawsuit alleges that residents were drugged, subjected to inhumane conditions, and in some cases died because of the negligence and mistreatment.

“Owners of nursing homes have a special obligation and special duty to provide a high level of care for their residents,” attorney general Leticia James said. “Yet the abject failure of The Villages and its owners to uphold their duty under the law caused residents to suffer inhumane treatment, neglect, and harm. Instead of investing in staffing and resources, the owners allegedly disregarded laws designed to protect residents.”
