In April 2017, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Brookdale Senior Living for allegedly misleadingly representing that it bases staffing decisions at assisted living facilities on its Resident Assessment program that identifies specifics about each resident’s level of care when, according to plaintiffs, staffing decisions are based on labor budgets and profit goals determined at the corporate level. (Runton et al v. Brookdale Senior Living, Inc.
, Case No. 17-cv-60664, S. D. FL.)
