CHICAGO — A deceased man's family has filed a wrongful death claim against Loretto Hospital, alleging negligence in medical care.

Betty Harris-Johnson, as special administrator of the estate of Earl Johnson, filed a complaint on Dec. 15 in Cook County Circuit Court against Loretto Hospital, alleging the hospital failed to properly diagnose and treat a stroke Johnson suffered in December 2014, which they allege resulted in respiratory failure, aspiration pneumonia and cardiac arrest a month later.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000 plus court costs. She is represented by Evan M. Smola of Hurley McKenna & Mertz, P.C. in Chicago.
