Daughter claims mother lived in agonizing pain at nursing home


Cynthia Harris has a badge from the Laurellwood Nursing Center in St. Petersburg identifying her as “Our Sweetest Volunteer.”

She is anything but sweet on this facility now.

“It’s as if every single department has issues,” she said.

Cindy’s mother Ruth Jones was a patient at Laurellwood.

She contends there were problems from meal preparation to providing pain medication.

Cindy contends the nursing facility made life much more difficult and painful for her mother than it needed to be.
