Steven M. Levin of the Chicago-based law firm Levin & Perconti filed a nursing home negligence lawsuit today in Lake County, Illinois on behalf of 65-year old Barbara Clapman against Manorcare at Libertyville, alleging neglect and mistreatment. The facility has also been cited by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) for neglect and improper nursing care.
During her stay at the Manorcare Nursing Home, Ms. Clapman was neglected so badly that she developed severely infected pressure ulcers. One of the pressure sores, located in the sacrum area, became so deep that it caused osteomyelitis, an infection in the bone.
