CHICAGO — A woman is suing a nursing care facility, citing alleged negligent supervision.
Marina Albarran, as independent administrator of the estate of the late Librada Jacob, filed a complaint June 5 in Cook County Circuit Court against Symphony of Buffalo Grove, alleging the defendant violated the Wrongful Death Act and the Nursing Home Care Act.
According to the complaint, Jacobs was admitted to the defendant's nursing home on June 13, 2016, for rehabilitation. At the time of her residency, the plaintiff claims Jacobs became malnourished, developed numerous pressure ulcers, fell several times and became dehydrated, allegedly resulting in further deterioration of her physical and mental condition.
The plaintiff alleged Symphony of Buffalo Grove failed to provide the necessary care in maintaining the resident's physical, mental and psychological well-being in accordance with a care plan and comprehensive assessment.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a judgment greater than $50,000. She is represented by Michael J. Eisenberg of Rosenberg, Eisenberg & Associates LLC in Arlington Heights.
