New Mexico files lawsuit against Texas-based nursing home chain

New Mexico’s attorney general sued Plano, Texas-based Preferred Care Partners Management Group, one of the country’s biggest nursing home chains, over allegations that adequate care cannot possibly be provided to its residents based on their thin staff numbers, the Longview News-Journal reported on December 5.

The lawsuit, filed by Democratic Attorney General Gary King, could also be used in other states if it succeeds. King told The Associated Press that “the failure to provide the care that patients need and that homes are paid for will not be tolerated.”

Preferred Care Management Partners has branches in at least 10 states: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Nevada, Kansas, Mississippi, and Texas.
