Holland Christian Homes Class Action Lawsuit
Residents of long-term care facilities and nursing homes have borne the brunt of the COVID-19 pandemic in Ontario. By early May, cases had been discovered at hundreds of facilities, and dozens of deaths had been recorded. Across Canada, more than 80 per cent of all COVID-19 deaths had occurred in long-term care settings.
The COVID-19 pandemic has called attention to the long history of negligence and abuse at Ontario’s nursing homes, a history that Will Davidson LLP has become intimately aware of during our years litigating nursing home negligence cases. We believe that some of the worst outcomes from the COVID-19 outbreaks could have been prevented by improved planning and more aggressive prevention measures. This is the basis of our Holland Christian Homes class action investigation.
The provincial government has acknowledged failures in the long-term care system:
“We must change the system,” said Premier Doug Ford in late May. “This tragedy must serve as a wakeup call to our entire country and it’s no secret that COVID-19 has taken a system with deep problems, a system that has been neglected for years, and pushed it to the brink. COVID-19 has exposed the deep, deep cracks in the long-term care system. It’s up to us now to fix these problems, it is up to us to face the hard truths that have been ignored for decades.”
How Can Will Davidson LLP Help?
Will Davidson LLP is currently investigating reports of substandard care at several long-term care facilities in Ontario, including those owned by Holland Christian Homes. Our team is concerned that negligence, poor planning, and a failure to adhere to the province’s COVID-19 guidelines directly contributed to the unnecessary pain, suffering, and death of residents. If our investigation shows that Holland Christian residents suffered unnecessarily, we may move forward with a Holland Christian Homes class action. Doing so would provide the residents and their family with the chance to access compensation for their injuries.
Will Davidson LLP is also investigating the activities of, or has launched class action proceedings against, the following Ontario long-term care facilities:
- Ina Grafton Gage Home in Scarborough, Ontario
- Orchard Villa Long Term Care in Pickering, Ontario
- Oxford Living, the owner of Lundy Manor in Niagara Falls, Ontario
- The Village of Erin Meadows in Mississauga, Ontario
- Rosslyn Retirement Residence in Hamilton, Ontario
- Chartwell Retirement Residences
