A senior-care chain whose San Mateo facility saw two residents die after drinking caustic liquid tried to cover up a third similar death at its care home in Walnut Creek, a new lawsuit claims. The lawsuit was filed Thursday against Kentucky-based care-home giant Atria by family members of Trudy Maxwell, one of the two San Mateo victims. The complaint refers to a third incident, at Atria Walnut Creek, which had not been previously disclosed. Dementia patient Constantine Canoun 'ingested an unknown liquid that had been left unattended' in a kitchen area at the Walnut Creek facility in Contra Costa County on Aug.
