Illinois Nursing Home Sued over Resident’s Care

A woman is claiming she received injuries after a Cahokia, Illinois nursing home failed to provide adequate care. The woman filed the nursing home negligence lawsuit in St. Clair County Circuit Court. The elderly negligence lawsuit alleges that employees at the center failed to care for her as they should have by failing to develop an individualized comprehensive care plan to ensure that she was kept clean to prevent infection in the skin of her abdominal folds. Additionally, they failed to develop a comprehensive care plan for her to address her medical, nursing, mental and psychosocial needs. As a result of this negligence, the woman was injured and is seeking a judgment in excess of $50,000.
