CHICAGO — A family member is suing a group of Chicago health care providers, alleging their negligence caused pain and suffering to a relative.

Michael Gubin, as power of attorney for Robert Gubin, filed a lawsuit June 8 in Cook County Circuit Court against Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, assumed name Medical Services RIC, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago Enterprises Ltd., The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago Foundation, Senior Lifestyle Corporation, and Senior Lifestyle Northbrook LLC, doing business as North Shore Place, alleging violation of the Nursing Home Care Act and negligence in that insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries.

According to the complaint, from June 20-Aug. 28, 2014, Robert Gubin experienced pain from having developed bed sores and other conditions of ill-being while a patient at RIC. The plaintiff alleges the defendants neglected their duty to Gubin while he was under their care by providing inadequate supervision as well as not providing appropriate medical measures to make sure Gubin was comfortable during his stay at their facility.

Michael Gubin seeks more than $50,000, plus court costs and any further relief the court deems just. He is represented by the law firm of Costello, McMahon, Burke & Murphy LTD in Chicago.
