Chicago Nursing Home Glenshire causes pressure sores and death, lawsuit alleges

A nursing home lawsuit was filed today by Steven Levin and Michael Bonamarte of the Chicago-based law firm Levin & Perconti in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois on behalf of the daughter of 78-year-old resident who died on January 31, 2007. The lawsuit alleges that the woman died as a result of the nursing home abuse and neglect she suffered while a resident at Glenshire Nursing and Rehabilitation Center located at 22660 South Cicero Avenue, in Richton Park, Illinois. While a resident at Glenshire, the woman developed multiple infected pressure ulcers which ultimately caused or contributed to cause her death. The lawsuit also alleges that the staff at Glenshire Nursing and Rehab Center allowed the resident to become dehydrated and malnourished.
