Jamie Ivey filed a lawsuit against Hollywood Premier nursing home, where her father died of COVID-19.
Unbeknownst to Ivey, her dad James had tested positive for COVID-19 nearly a week before his death. She says she didn't receive the grim news until the day before his passing.
Ivey’s litigation is among a growing number of lawsuits filed across California against nursing home operators that accuse staff and administrators of negligence, reckless misconduct, and elder abuse in their response to the coronavirus.
Los Angeles Times staff writer Matt Hamilton stopped by Los Angeles Times Today with the latest allegations.
