ELDER ABUSE LEADS TO WRONGFUL DEATHS

Confidentiality Agreement

Yes, I settled out of court in a mediation that was bogus.  I sued my attorney, Daniel Leipold for malpractice for advising me to settle without including wrongful death when I was in a compromised physical state (pancreatic cancer surgery just weeks before).  I refused to sign any further documents knowing Leipold had conspired with Matros to defraud me.  This included a confidentiality agreement they neglected to get my signature on in mediation.  I eventually won that malpractice lawsuit against Mr. Leipold.  Judge Gregory Jones told me in 2007 that I have the right to state the truth:  Rick Matros killed my mother citing freedom of speech, protected speech, peaceful protest because I proved it in the Medical Review of Dr L Scott Stoney June, 2006.

Matros apologized through his employee Julie Campbell in October, 2003 for harming my mother in that she had a stroke that caused serious brain injury when blood pressure medications were withheld per a telephone message from Dr Stoney that had been "planted" in her medical records and found during discovery. Dr Stoney testified this was "planted" to set him up.

Medical Review by Dr L Scott Stoney

Dr Stoney said "THOSE BASTARDS KILLED YOUR MOTHER" June, 2006 when I picked up the medical review he wrote declaring Sun and it's CEO, Richard K Matros, responsible for Evelyn Calvert's death.

Dr Stoney testified his pleas for help were ignored and he quit as Medical Director of SunBridge Newport Beach, due to Sun Healthcare's blatant disregard for human life. He'd socialized with the CEO, Richard K Matros, and was told the "Calvert" case was already compromised in November, 2003. Furthermore, that Debbie Calvert, myself, would be better off taking pix of Mr Matros with his "women friends" at "Laker's games" and sharing them with Dr Matros, his wife, rather than suing -to get further with Matros in retaliation for his blatant harm done to my mother. A clue Matros had already engaged my corrupt attorney at the time, Daniel Leipold, to commit legal malpractice, so that Matros couldn't lose his job! Matros' willful misconduct was easy to prove. And apparently his infidelities were as well!

Even the Dept of Justice, via Claude Vanderwold, prevented justice in this case! Was it for a price?

Why? Corruption.

This case is often refered to as the "kiss of death" because so many have died who took part in it. Starting with not only the five victims, 1) Stella Carter; 2) Richard Laga; 3) Betty Harness; 4) Man in Rm2B Oct 2003 and my mother, 5) Evelyn Calvert. Then two attorneys died, both the original wrongful death attorney who represented me fraudulently, Daniel Leipold, upon learning I was suing him for malpractice, in March, 2007, of unknown causes in his sleep. This should be seriously investigated because of the magnitude of Rick Matros' profit from his malpracitce. Then just 2 months later my malpractice attorney, Herb Patt, an associate of Andres & Andres who suffered a large stroke and passed away. Witnesses Toni Chesmire, activities director at SunBridge Newport of Lou Gerhig's disease and Dolores Otting, a caretaker of a neighboring family member to my mother, died of a brain cancer in 2012.  Or was it the filth found by Otting in the ductless basement HVAC system that caused cancer to her and many others that spent time in the Sunbridge facility on Superior Ave in Newport Beach?  That system was sealed shut in 2003 upon discovery it was faulty and condemned by OSHPD in June, 2003.

Deaths caused by Sun Healthcare reported to Gov't

Why didn't The Orange County Register and Los Angeles Times print the fact we reported deaths in Sun Healthcare's SunBridge Newport on Superior Avenue in 2003? I also personally called and wrote to both the Dept of Justice via the Calif State Attorney General's office, Claude Vanderwold and Dept of Health, Jackie Lincer, and told them patients were "dropping like flies" from Sun's neglect, abuse, the CEO's willful misconduct, yet they did nothing until the 5th patient I knew died, Richard Laga, in December, 2003. It was too late for my mother, Evelyn Calvert, who was already in an acute care hospital with MRSA from Sun.

I believe there is widespread corruption in this industry or at least amongst the CEO of Sun Healthcare. My mother's physician, Dr Stoney, told me to fear Sun's CEO for being the whistleblower, that they'd "plant a gun or drugs in your car" if I continue to pursue truth behind the wrongful death of my mother. I was also threatened by my former late corrupt attorney Daniel Leipold in mediation that they'd harm me. I was witness to 5 deaths they caused, I reported them, yet they were never held accountable. Some who died didn't have family to puruse litigation.

When I attempted to hire another attorney, Keith Wisbaum in July, 2006, to have the settlement set aside he wrongfully charged me $2,500, spoke with Daniel Leipold then refused to file what was needed in court, just too busy he said. Months later he called within minutes of Matros losing a bid at a retaining order against me, giving me a message that I could call him at anytime if I needed anything. They feared me! Because it was what I knew as a witness that scared them.

Put all together my case is a perfect example of how big corporation politics work. Ask Julie Campbell, employee of Sun, just how this happened. I do not believe she'd lie for the former CEO of Sun Healthcare, Richard K Matros any longer. Nor will Dr Stoney!

November, 2003

My mother's physician and Sun Healthcare's Medical Director of the Sunbridge Newport Rehab facility, Dr L Scott Stoney, met with Richard Matros at a Lakers game where Matros asked if the families were really mad at him. Dr Stoney said yes, and the Calvert family would be suing for harm done when the blood pressure monitor broke in October and caused her to have a large stroke. He warned Matros that the families were savvy and he couldn't tell them black was blue and they'd go away, they found out about the Califonia state injunction and were pursuing criminal charges against him. Dr Stoney gave a message for myself, Debbie Calvert, "tell her she'd be better off taking pix of Matros and his high priced prostitutes at the Lakers games rather than suing Sun in the court system". Dr Stoney said Matros promised he could even
introduce him to the owner of the Laker's, Jerry Buss!

I realize now this was a message from Dr Stoney, our star witness, that Sun Healthcare's CEO had my attorney in his pockets and it didn't matter if I sued, his loyalty was to Matros and Sun. I sued that former attorney for malpractice and he died 2 weeks later. He had dropped wrongful death without consulting any medical professional nor myself. He ignored my numerous emails that Dr Stoney was glad we were suing and willing to testify. It was obviously a sham representation and I have the evidence to prove it.

This shows how the CEO of Sun Heatlhcare operated in a criminal fashion to avoid prosecution. 

Sun Healthcare was cited by the Dept of Health for lack of staffing May 28th, June 3,5,6,9,12,13,14,15,28 and 29th, 2003.  Then on July 6th patient Richard Laga left the facility for an acute care hospital due to gangrene of the foot.  He died by Christmas from this gangrene.  The Dept of Health cited Sun for his death, but did not fine them $100,000.  Why?  They also didn't consider this in the settlement in Sept, 2005, with the Dept of Justice for violating their injunction.  Why?

June 4, 2003, Sun's employee Tom Greenwald met with OSHPD's employee Chuck DeCapite who wrote in his field report posted on this site, "THE NEED AND URGENCY WAS DISCUSSED THIS DATE, NO EXCEPTIONS". In regard to replacing the May 15, 2003 condemned HVAC system to patient rooms.  This was never done and my mother suffered horribly from their lack of concern.

All this stinks of corruption.

The Dept of Justice knew from me the first week in June, 2003, that Sun was violating their 2001 State Injunction and should have filed contempt proceedings but did not. 

Second degree murder should be charged to both Sun and the DOJ who allowed these conditions to kill 4 patients I watched die:  Richard Laga, Betty Harness, the man in Rm 2-B Oct 2003 and my mother, Evelyn Calvert.

Read the medical records for yourself and ask:  Why did this happen?

CANHR sues Sun Healthcare, settles out of court

CANHR, a nonprofit consumer advocacy organization filed a lawsuit charging Sun with unlawful business practices, unfair and fraudulent business practices, and false advertising (California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform v. Sun Healthcare Group Inc. 2003). The lawsuit alleged that Sunbridge facilities in California were more than 1 million hours on aggregate below the state's 3.2 nursing hprd direct care requirement, which resulted in a savings of more than $15 million by not meeting the staffing standard in 2000. The litigation was settled out of court in 2004 and the settlement results were not made public.
