Addus Healthcare Inc. is facing suit after allegedly committing medical malpractice.

Craig Staley and Deborah Staley filed a medical malpractice lawsuit Dec. 16 in the Cook County Circuit Court against Addus Healthcare Inc.

The complaint states that on Dec. 15, 2011, the defendant provided medical care to Craig. The plaintiffs say the defendant provided inadequate medical care, including failing to take steps to reduce risks of infection, failing to transfer Craig to an acute care facility and failed to respond to Craig's condition.

They are seeking damages in excess of $50,000, including damages for loss of consortium, and are being represented by attorney Robert A. Montgomery.
