CHICAGO – A Chicago hospital is being accused of wrongful death over claims a pressure ulcer contributed to a patient's death.
John Hill, as independent administrator of the estate of Ronald Hill, filed a complaint on Jan. 5 in Cook County Circuit Court against Rush University Medical Center; RML Health Providers Limited Partnership, doing business as RML Specialty Hospital, and others, alleging negligence and wrongful death.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges the late Ronald Hill developed a pressure ulcer while under the care of the defendants for a month in late 2014.
