The Grandview Nursing Home in Grandview, Texas, is being investigated by federal and state officials after more than a dozen nursing home owners have filed a class action lawsuit against the company alleging that it failed to provide the minimum standards for safety and health care, according to a court filing by the plaintiffs.
The lawsuit alleges that the nursing home failed to perform regular inspections on the facility’s facilities and to provide necessary medical care and other necessities, including necessary vaccinations, the lawsuit said.
“The owners and operators of the nursing homes at Grandview and Southpoint have engaged in a deliberate scheme to intentionally and maliciously defraud the United States and its citizens by unlawfully withholding funds and resources to provide essential health care services and to improve safety and quality of care,” the lawsuit states.
“These actions are part of a larger scheme to defraud nursing home residents by manipulating and manipulating the prices and other fees of their services.”
The lawsuit is seeking class certification of all the plaintiffs and a court order to compel the company to pay damages to each of the plaintiffs, the complaint states.
The nursing home, located at 5500 Southpoint Drive in Southpoint, Texas is owned by the Southern Baptist Convention and operated by Baptist Health Services.

The suit states that the defendants “have failed to comply with their duty of care to the citizens of the United State, by willfully and maliciousfully falsifying the records and billing records of the Southern BHC as to the amount of funding, services, services provided and the care provided by the residents of the Southpoint facility.”
“Defendants have also willfully and unlawfully violated their duty to their residents, by falsely reporting that the residents received free medical care services, free vaccines and free vaccinations as required by federal law,” the suit states.
According to the lawsuit, the defendants had not provided sufficient funding and services to the residents as required under federal law, and they had not complied with other state and federal laws.
“Defendant defendants have repeatedly refused to fulfill their duty under federal and local law to provide adequate and timely health care to residents and their families, by repeatedly failing to comply,” the plaintiffs allege.
“As a result of this failure, residents of Grandview are now at increased risk of contracting serious illnesses from the highly infectious diseases contracted from the facility.”
Grandview officials have not yet responded to a request for comment on the lawsuit.
The Southern Baptist Association of Grandville and Central Texas has filed a separate lawsuit on behalf of the residents, accusing the nursing facility of failing to provide proper supervision and medical services.
“No one should ever be left in the dark about a nursing facility’s health and safety,” the complaint said.
