CHICAGO — The representative of a patient is suing long-term care facility Alden Estates of Barrington Inc. and Alden Management Services Inc. for allegedly taking insufficient measures to monitor the patient's risk for infection after medical hardware was removed from her brain.
Marianne Giovenco-Pappas, plenary guardian of the person and estate of Rosemary Giovenco, filed a lawsuit on March 2 in Cook County Circuit Court alleging the defendants failed to provide proper care to Giovenco.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges Giovenco experienced pain after suffering a brain infection that resulted in the deterioration of her health. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible for allegedly allowing the development of a MRSA bacterial infection and failing to bathe Giovencio and wash her hair.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000. She is represented by John J. Pappas, Sr. of the Pappas Law Group LLC in Chicago.
