CHICAGO — A woman is suing a Homewood nursing home, alleging a relative suffered due to inadequate care.

Marilyn Schreiber, administrator of the estate of Rudolph J. Schreiber, filed a lawsuit Jan. 7 in Cook County Circuit Court, against Manor Care of Homewood LLC, doing business as ManorCare Health Services-Homewood, alleging negligence and failure to provide adequate care.

According to the complaint, Rudolph J. Schreiber was a resident of Manor Care of Homewood in January 2014. The suit says the long-term nursing home accepted Schreiber as a patient and agreed to provide care in conjunction with a preexisting injury involving a fracture of the lower extremity that required supervision, care and treatment.

The lawsuit states the defendant failed to adequately staff the facility and provide the necessary training, resulting in allegedly inadequate care of Schreiber. 

Marilyn Schreiber alleges Rudolph Schreiber suffered from an infection to his lower extremities and body as a whole, causing pain and suffering that continued until his death.

Schreiber seeks damages of more than $30,000, compensation for injuries and litigation fees. She is represented by attorney Terry M. Lachcik of the Law Office of Daniel E. Goodman LLC in Rosemont.

Cook County Circuit Court Case number 2016-L000143
