A nursing home is required to provide quality care for our loved ones in their later years. All too often, however, nursing home negligence causes harm or even death to someone we love. A recent neglect lawsuit was filed by Levin & Perconti for the estate administrator of a woman who died. The woman had been residing in BRIA Health Services LLC where she allegedly developed a severe infection and died as a result. According to the information, the nursing home staff was negligent in her care and allowed her condition to deteriorate. The lawsuit names the nursing home along with Jackson Park Hospital and Medical Center alleging negligence and wrongful death.
Nursing Home Injuries
Nursing home injuries are more common than most people realize. Thousands of nursing home residents are been hurt or have died every year due to the negligent actions at a nursing home. Some of the most frequent nursing home injuries occur due to falls, medication mistakes, or bedsores. These are all issues that can and should be prevented. When the care workers do not take proper care of residents the result can be devastating. Nursing home neglect and abuse often go unreported.
