Lawsuit filed in South Dakota against Good Samaritan Society

Albert Lea Tribune, by Tim Engstrom

Another lawsuit has been filed in the Albert Lea elder abuse case against the Good Samaritan Society. This civil case has been filed in Sioux Falls, which is the headquarters for the nursing home chain.

The lawsuit seeks damages from Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society, saying its supervisors in Albert Lea were negligent in failing to provide proper supervision of four teenage certified nursing assistants who allegedly abused patients emotionally, sexually and physically in the first half of 2008.

Lawyer Jim Carey, of the SiebenCarey law firm in Minneapolis, alleged systemic failure at a news conference in January in Minneapolis. He said the situation was not just the case of one employee who on one or two occasions engaged in this type of behavior. Instead, he alleged, these nurses aides were going into rooms and locking the doors, adding there was screaming from the residents, laughing from the aides and video recording as well.
