CHICAGO — An administrator of a deceased man's estate has filed a wrongful death suit against the University of Chicago Medical Center, alleging negligence in medical care.
Desiree Syler, as independent administrator of the estate of Roger R. Salinas, filed a complaint on Nov. 1 in Cook County Circuit Court against University of Chicago Medical Center, alleging the hospital failed to provide proper medical care to Salinas.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that Salinas suffered from skin breakdowns and other medical conditions that contributed to his death.
