A recent wrongful death lawsuit filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County alleges negligence in nursing home care. The lawsuit, filed against Southpoint Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, is discussed in the Cook County Record article of September 21, 2016, titled “Wrongful death allegation made against Southpoint Nursing and Rehabilitation.”
As seen in the article, the lawsuit claims that the nursing home failed to provide adequate supervision, and that the development of bedsores – as well as a nursing home fall – contributed to the death of the nursing home resident.
Any time a nursing home patient dies – or significantly suffers – from either bedsores and/or other nursing home injuries, the actions or negligence leading to such a death or significant injuries should be scrutinized and investigated. The nursing home lawyers at the Elman Law Group can determine whether a lawsuit should be filed with regard to such incidents.
