Levin & Perconti Sues Parkview Terrace Nursing Home in East Moline

A nursing home is facing a lawsuit from a widow who is accusing the facility of negligence that led to her husband’s death in East Moline. Levin & Perconti filed the suit for the family of the victim against Parkview Terrace. The victim died of renal failure and sepsis caused by dehydration. The suit was filed in Cook County courts. When the family went to the hospital, the emergency room doctor told them it was the worst case of dehydration he had ever seen. When the man was admitted to the nursing home, the staff determined he was at risk for dehydration. The staff members were supposed to help him with his meals and watch his intake of food and fluid. However, when his family members returned a week later, the victim was lethargic and medications were running out of his mouth. He died 36 hours later. This is the second lawsuit Levin & Perconti has filed against Lakeview Terrace. The first involved a woman who also had died of dehydration.
