Texas Personal Injury Lawyer Alex Martinez Sues San Juan Nursing Home in Rio Grande Valley


Physically abused disabled man neglected by nursing home staff, lawsuit says

McALLEN, TX, June 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer Alex Martinez of The law firms of Alex Martinez in the Rio Grande Valley is suing for abuse and negligence against McAllen, TXto San Juan Nursing Home Inc. on behalf of Faustino Porras and his family.

The amended lawsuit filed last month at 398e district court of Hidalgo County includes allegations that staff members at the San Juan Nursing Home repeatedly physically assaulted Mr. Porras and left him unattended for hours when he was in desperate need of care and unable to communicate due to his vegetative state.

Before being admitted to the San Juan retirement home in April 2017Mr. Porras’ family informed staff members and provided documentation indicating that he suffered from severe brain damage and had been declared physically and mentally disabled due to loss of oxygen during a previous surgery.

His elderly mother, Oralia Porras, visited Mr. Porras almost daily at the San Juan Nursing Home after he was admitted in stable condition. She soon began noticing and documenting her son’s many unexplained black eyes and bruises, excessive weight loss, and other physical ailments.

Before taking her son to July 2018, Ms. Porras documented the unsanitary conditions at the San Juan nursing home that led to her son’s bedbug bites, scabies sores, sepsis and other infections. A video assembled by M. Martinez (ATTENTION: viewer discretion advised) shows the disturbing photographs by Mr. Porras taken by his mother.

A expert report prepared by a registered nurse with a master’s degree whom Mr. Martinez hired says nurses at the San Juan Nursing Home failed to comply with standards of care and failed to protect Mr. Porras. The report also says nurses there failed to assess and monitor Mr Porras to ensure his safety or “provide the necessary treatment and routine care he deserved”.

Another expert report was prepared by a doctor with decades of experience as a certified medical director who has worked as a medical director in several nursing homes. The report details the serious injuries sustained by Mr. Porras at the San Juan Nursing Home and notes that his mother “asked many questions about his care and the nursing home staff never responded to his concerns.”
