Extendicare Lawsuit Expanded to Include More Charges

The class action lawsuit against Extendicare Nursing Homes has been expanded to include additional charges. The company, which owns 15 nursing homes accused of nursing home abuse and nursing home neglect has been charged with accepting patients regardless of if they had the ability to help them out in the way they required, for advertising care beyond what they provided and for violating a law that did not allow patients to sign waivers to keep them from suing for personal injuries or property loss.
