CHICAGO – A Cook County man is suing a nursing home for alleged neglect and wrongful death of a 57-year-old resident.
Reynaldo Escobar, independent administrator of the estate of Lydia Escobar, filed a lawsuit Jan. 19 in Cook County Circuit Court against Glenshire Nursing and Rehabilitation Centre Ltd., doing business as Glenshire Nursing and Rehab Centre in Richton Park, alleging violations of the Nursing Home Care Act and Survival Act.
According to the complaint, Lydia Escobar was admitted to Glenshire on March 1, 2014.
