CHICAGO — The guardian of a disabled person is suing Lydia Healthcare, a nursing facility, for allegedly taking insufficient measures to prevent injuries and negligence.
Rose Molex, plenary guardian of a resident at the facility, filed a complaint on June 27 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the nursing facility failed to provide proper care.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges the patient escaped from the facility and jumped off a bridge on July 2, 2016, breaking his left wrist and lacerating his liver. The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible for allegedly failing to adequately supervise him to address his risk of escaping and falling due, in part, to certain mental illnesses.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000 plus court costs. The plaintiff is represented by Kelly Sabo Gaden of The Law Offices of Steven J. Malman & Associates P.C. in Chicago.
