Nursing home abuse and neglect lawsuit filed

Levin & Perconti has recently filed a lawsuit against a Chicago, Illinois nursing home, Clark Manor Convalescent Center, on behalf of a resident who has suffered needlessly as a result of significant neglect in the facility. The man was assessed as at risk for falls and development of bed sores, or decubitus ulcers. The lack of supervision at the facility allowed the resident to fall from bed resulting in a hip fracture. In addition, the failure of the facility to monitor the patient allowed him to develop multiple bed sores. The resident sustained injuries including the hip fracture and bedsores that required extensive surgical treatments, malnutrition, osteomyelitis requiring long-term IV antibiotics and a decline in quality of life.
