The complaint filed against Manning Gardens Care Center and its owner alleges elder abuse, assault, battery, and wrongful death. The family is seeking actual and punitive damages for the nursing home abuse of their family member. Allegations of Substandard Care The complaint alleges the facility has been cited numerous times in the past for substandard care.
