Hayward nursing home, parent company must pay almost $20 million for neglecting patients, jury says

A Hayward nursing home will have to pay almost $20 million in damages and court costs after a jury found it responsible for the death of some residents and significant neglect of others.

At the end of a four-month trial, the Alameda County jury on Thursday found that Parkview Healthcare Center committed “fraud in the commission of neglect,” according to Susan Kang Gordon, one of the attorney for the 10 plaintiffs — nursing home residents and the families of dead patients — who were awarded $9.6 million in punitive damages from the center and its parent company, Mariner Healthcare. The other attorneys were Jennifer Fiore and Jody Moore.
