A man in Santa Fe, New Mexico has filed a lawsuit against Pacifica Senior Living for the death of his father, Julian Gaul. In February 2017, the staff found the 83-year-old man lying on the floor between his wheelchair and bed, and transported him to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center. The man's son, Fred Gaul, was told by a doctor that blood had been collecting in his father's brain for some time, likely from an earlier fall. Less than 24 hours later, Gaul was found on the floor again and was taken to the hospital and treated for a broken nose and wide gash across his forehead that required six stitches. Sores were discovered in his groin region along with fungus growing on his genitalia from not being cleaned for months. Gaul died three days later.

Dr. Celia Lloyd-Turney, an Alabama doctor, is being sued for the wrongful death of one of her patients who died May 15, 2016. The lawsuit was filed by the deceased's administrator and states Dr. Turney began treating Felicia Ann Kelly for "alleged anxiety and chronic pain," back in January 2012. Between 2012 and 2016, Dr. Turney prescribed at least 3,645 oxycodone pills to Kelly, 582 of which were prescribed during the final two and half months of her life. During that time, Kelly was also prescribed several other prescriptions, including opioids and benzodiazepines. Sources say Kelly's toxicology tests detected "fatal levels" of oxycodone and other drugs and that she died from "mixed drug toxicity."
