The Chicago nursing home neglect lawyersat our firm were not surprised to open the paper recently and see an article about a new wrongful death lawsuit filed against the Rainbow Beach Nursing Center on the city’s south side. We have previously worked with families whose loved one suffered after being neglected at this very facility. The repeat problems is a testament to the fact that poor care is often connected to cultures of inadequate care at a home, where the owners and operators are more concerned with maximizing their profit than providing the support residents’ need.
Illinois Wrongful Death Suit
According to an article in the Chicago Tribune on this latest legal case, the issue related to a medication error. The family of a former resident of the facility filed suit claiming that their loved one’s death was caused by a fatal medication overdose. In particular, the article discussing the matter suggests that two different doctors working with the female-resident gave her inappropriate doses and dangerous combinations of drugs which together caused the deadly outcome. The suit claims that these errors, along with a failure to properly monitor a change in condition, led to the senior’s passing.
