CHICAGO — A daughter and estate administrator is suing a rehabilitation center, citing alleged negligent supervision.
Sunday Love, on behalf of the estate of Phyllis Love, filed a complaint June 27 in Cook County Circuit Court against Belhaven Nursing and Rehab Center, for alleged violations of the Nursing Home Care Act and Survival Act of the State of Illinois.
According to the complaint, Phyllia Love was admitted to the defendant's facility in September 2014 for home and rehabilitative services. However, the plaintiff said Love allegedly developed multiple pressure ulcers in September 2016, while still a resident of Bellhaven, causing a deterioration in her physical and mental condition.
Love's condition worsened, the lawsuit said, contributing to her death on May 31, 2017.
The plaintiff said Bellhaven allegedly failed to provide properly supervised nursing and personal care and failed to adequately and appropriately train its staff regarding the importance and procedures for monitoring residents.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks more than $50,000 in damages. She is represented by Matthew Henry of The Law Offices of Steven J. Malman & Associates PC in Chicago.
