Chris Fernandez is only 21, but has spent years living in nursing homes. He was paralyzed in a car accident when he was just 16 years old.
Most recently, Chris lived at the Valley View Care Center in Anson. He said his doctor advised nurses there he needed to be turned every two to three hours.
"They never turned me. They changed the dressing, but most of the time they forgot," he said.
As a result, Fernandez said he developed a bedsore so bad he needed skin grafts. Despite everything, he said he wanted to go back to Valley View.
"Thats like my home," he said.
However, he learned this week that wasn't an option.
"They called my mom and said that she needed to find me another place to live," he said.
Employees at Valley View declined to go on camera, but told KTAB they felt Fernandez was a liability to the nursing home.
"I don't want him back there. They did not take care of him, they did not rotate him like they were supposed to," said Elicia Fernandez, Chris's sister.
Elicia filed a complaint with the Department of Aging and Disability Services this week. Records from the Department of Aging and Disability Services show Valley View has been cited by the state several times. Most recently, they were cited in September 2011 for not making sure residents were well-nourished and for storing food improperly.
Chris is staying at Anson General Hospital for the time being until he can find a more permanent place to stay.
