A man is suing a nursing home after developing bed sores.
Frank Wilson filed a complaint June 18 in Cook County Circuit Court against the Estates at Hyde Park LLC.
Wilson was admitted to the defendant's nursing home in July 2012. While living there, the lawsuit states, Wilson developed decubitis ulcers, which were ultimately treated on May 30, 2015, when Wilson was transferred from the Estates at Hyde Park to the University of Chicago Medical Center. After treatment, he was transferred to Renaissance at South Shore for hospice care.
The defendant is cited with violating the state's Nursing Home Care Act by failing to administer the facility in a way conducive to the plaintiff's well-being, follow professional services, provide Wilson with professional care, ensure his care was properly supervised by a doctor and the defendant's staff, notify Wilson's family about his condition, and protect him from abuse and neglect.
The plaintiff seeks a jury trial and damages in excess of the court's jurisdictional limits.
The plaintiff is represented by Craig M. Sandberg of Muslin and Sandberg in Chicago.
Cook County Circuit Court case number 2015L006209.
