CHICAGO — An administrator of a deceased woman's estate has filed a wrongful death claim against several health-care providers, alleging negligence in medical care.
Robert Anderson, individually and as special administrator of the estate of Cecil Anderson, filed a complaint on Dec. 21 in Cook County Circuit Court against Franciscan Alliance Inc., d/b/a Franciscan St. James Health, also d/b/a Franciscan St. James Health f/k/a St. James Hospital, Kenneth Bailey, M.D., individually and as an agent and/ or employee of Franciscan Alliance Inc. and as an agent and employee of Radiology Imaging Consultants, S.C. d/b/a Radiology Consultants, PCS. d/b/a Advance Vein and Vascular Center, alleging that they failed to provide proper medical care to Cecil Anderson.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that Cecil Anderson was diagnosed during a 2014 emergency-room visit with ailments including pneumonia, sepsis and influenza, and that medical personnel performed endotracheal intubation. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because the successful intubation allegedly caused pulmonary infiltrate to spread to Cecil Anderson's lungs before she went into cardiac arrest and died.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants in an amount that exceeds $50,000. He is represented by Larry R. Rogers, Jr. of Power, Rogers & Smith, L.L.P. in Chicago.
