CHICAGO — A representative for an estate is suing Alden Estates of Orland Park; Alden Management Services Inc.; Manorcare Health Services - Palos Heights East; HCR Manorcare Health Services LLC; and Heartland Employment Services LLC, citing alleged insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries and negligence.

Ann Newcom, as independent executor of the estate of Henry Newcom, filed a complaint on May 2 in Cook County Circuit Court against the defendants alleging they failed to provide proper care to Newcom, allowing him to develop pressure sores. The plaintiff says the defendants allegedly failed to provide adequate supervision and assistance to Newcom to prevent the development of pressure ulcers.

The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendants in an amount greater than $50,000. She is represented by Susan L. Novosad and Jacob D. Radecki of Levin & Perconti in Chicago.
