Abuse and neglect in Chicago area nursing home leads to death

Levin & Perconti recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of the wife of a nursing home resident who died as a result of neglect at the home. The home, William L. Dawson Nursing Center, acted neglectfully in allowing the resident to develop bedsores and failing to prevent them from worsening over time. The suit alleges that multiple infected pressure sores, sepsis, dehydration and malnutrition caused by the neglect of the nursing home eventually led to the resident’s death. Sadly, this is only one example of negligent nursing homes allowing patients to develop bedsores and preventing the sores from worsening.
