Estate administrator blames Symphony of Lincoln Park for patient fall, pressure sores

By Bree Gonzales | Aug 8, 2018

CHICAGO — An estate administrator is suing Symphony Lincoln Park LLC, doing business as long-term care facility Symphony of Lincoln Park, citing alleged violation of the Nursing Home Care Act.

Carolyn Hightower-Chalmers filed a complaint July 30 in Cook County Circuit Court on behalf of the estate of Glen Hightower.

According to the complaint, Glen Hightower was a resident of the defendant's facility between August 2015 and August 2016. While a resident there, Hightower-Chalmers claimed Glen Hightower developed pressure ulcers, which got worse. The plaintiff said Glen Hightower also fell multiple times, with one fall resulting in a hip fracture.

Hightower-Chalmers said the defendant allegedly failed to provide and update a care plan to address Glen Hightower's risk of falling and developing pressure ulcers.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks more than $50,000, attorney's fees and costs. She is represented by Kristen Koeller of Law Offices of Steven J. Malman & Associates in Chicago.
