First Cause of Action for Negligence:

Davis was appointed Director of Nursing per 22 Cal. Code Regs. §§72301, et seq. Stein, whether appointed, designated or licensed to do so, or not, together with various other defendants including Hill, and National Convalescent, acted as “Administrator,” and had a duty to act as Administrator of the facility. In other words, Stein shared responsibilities to administer the facility with Hill defendants and others.

Co-defendants PacifiCare, Novacare, and/or XYZ entered into agreements with the owners, operators and licensees of the facility to secure skilled nursing facility services. National undertook to satisfy the responsibility of PacifiCare, et al. to provide such services.


National and the individuals (group named Hill ) caused the dissolution of National with the result that Hill became owners of all of National Convalescent’s assets. Hill conducted the business of the Facility so as to unfairly and fraudulently leave it insufficient resources, including insurance and other assets with which to service its debts and obligations, including the debt represented by this action.

XYZ and Novacare and/or PacifiCare had contracted with National to provide skilled nursing facility care to enrollees.

National had a duty of ordinary care to provide custodial, nursing and medical care to its patients which met their reasonable needs. (See Part 4 of 9.)
