CHICAGO — An administrator of a deceased woman's estate is suing Generations at Columbus Park Inc., Columbus Park Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, Columbus Park Nursing & Rehabilitation Center Inc., and Columbus Park LLC, alleging negligence and insufficient measures taken to prevent injuries by a nursing home as part of a wrongful death claim.
Delores McConnell as special administrator of the estate of Anita Dunn filed a complaint on June 22 in Cook County Circuit Court against the defendants, alleging that they failed to provide proper medical care to Anita Dunn while she was being taken care of in their facility.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2014, Dunn sustained several physical injuries including the development of pressure ulcers that caused a deterioration in her health and contributed to or caused her death. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly failed to provide adequate supervision to Dunn and prevent her pressure ulcers from getting worse.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants in an amount in excess of $50,000. She is represented by Michael T. Mertz and Brian J. Holmes of Hurley McKenna & Mertz, P.C. in Chicago.
