Florida Nursing Home Sued Over Resident Pressure Ulcer Coverup

Vivian Wright is alleging a nursing home, in Orange Park, Florida that staff neglected to treat her father's bedsore wounds and then tried to cover the smell with coffee grounds. Vivian Wright's father, Frank, entered the Heartland Health Care Center of Orange Park in September 2019 after two strokes and multiple trips to the emergency room.
