West Virginia Nursing Home Sued Over Death of 77 Year Old Resident

A Hinton, West Virginia nursing home is being sued over the death of a 77 year old who sustained unidentified injuries while she being cared for at their facility. Emma Petrey was a resident of Summer Nursing & Rehabilitation Center for nearly 3 years before she died in October 2014 from alleged improper care at the hands of the facility.

The lawsuit alleges that the facility and its operators failed to provide safe living conditions and adequate care, thus resulting in Ms. Petrey’s life-ending injuries.

Any sign of injury incurred while being cared for at nursing home or care facility can be an indication of abuse, improper care, inadequate training of staff, or lack of supervision. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries while residing in a nursing home, the elder abuse attorneys at Levin & Perconti can help you determine if you may have reason to pursue legal action.
