East St. Louis hospital sued for negligence

The family of a woman who was a patient at an East St. Louis hospital in February 2005 is suing the hospital for failing to provide a safe environment, failing to prevent multiple falls, and failing to properly monitor the victim whiles she was a patient. According to the complaint, the hospital negligently failed to place the woman on a “fall precaution” list.

While a patient at the hospital, the victim fractured her right hip, which required surgery and the placement of a compression screw and a side plate. The family states that the victim endured serious pain and suffering, mental anguish and emotional distress. Her ability to enjoy life was adversely affected.
