CHICAGO – A deceased woman's family has sued a Chicago long-term care facility, accusing them of not appropriately caring for a hip fracture until several days after the fall that caused the fracture.

Tracey Quarles, as independent administrator of the estate of Margaret Quarles, filed a complaint on Nov. 18 in Cook County Circuit Court against Belhaven Nursing and Rehabilitation Center LLC and Infinity Health Care Management Inc.,  citing the Nursing Home Care Act, wrongful death and negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges Quarles experienced pain from suffering a fall, including a fractured left hip, while under the defendant's care on Jan. 29. The suit states that the defendants did not take Margaret Quarles to a hospital until Feb. 6. The plaintiff holds Belhaven and Infinity Health Care responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to hire adequately trained registered nurses and failed to appropriately monitor the quality of care the decedent received.

The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendants in an amount of more than $50,000. He is represented by David A. Neiman of Baizer Kolar PC in Highland Park.
