CHICAGO — An administrator is suing Countryside Nursing and Rehabilitation Center LLC, d/b/a Countryside Nursing and Rehab Center and Extended Care Consulting LLC, alleging negligence in nursing home care.

Lisa Buckhanan, as independent administrator to collect of the estate of Bernice Taylor, filed a complaint on July 13 in the Cook County Circuit Court against the defendant, alleging that it failed to provide proper care and medical attention to Taylor.
