ABC 57: Alina Habba represents Estate of Albert Roberts in lawsuit against New Jersey nursing home

09/08/2020

"The nursing home, Andover Subacute Rehabilitation Center II in Lafayette Township, New Jersey, is the same facility where authorities found 17 bodies in April in a morgue meant for four. "

“Roberts' uncle, Albert Roberts, died April 1 due to complications from Covid-19, according to the suit. He was 76 at the time of his death, according to Roberts and his attorney, Alina Habba.”

"Among the many issues cited, one of the consistent findings was that the Facilities [both Andover I and Andover II] had continuously failed to meet the requisite safety and sanitary standards needed to protect against the spread of infection and communicable disease among its residents and patients," the suit says.

"In fact, CMS specifically directed the Facilities to implement adequate infection prevention and control programs on numerous occasions," the suit continues. "...Despite CMS's instruction, Defendants failed to implement any such measures and the Facilities continued to operate without satisfactory infection prevention and control programs in place."
