CHICAGO — An administrator of a deceased woman's estate is suing Alden-Valley Ridge Rehabilitation and Health Care Center Inc., d/b/a Alden Valley Ridge Rehabilitation & Health Care Center; and Alden Management Services Inc., in a wrongful death suit alleging negligence in nursing home care.
Colleen Quinlisk Siau, as independent administrator to collect of the estate of Josephine Thurston, filed a complaint on July 6 in Cook County Circuit Court against the defendants, alleging that they failed to take proper care of Thurston.
