CHICAGO – A woman has filed suit against a Chicago hospital and other medical entities over allegations they failed to prevent her mother from developing pressure sores.
Jacklan Hudson-Shempert, as independent administrator of the estate of Mae Hudson, filed a complaint on Oct. 1 in Cook County Circuit Court against Roseland Community Hospital; Rush University Medical Center; and physician Ahmed Shafi, alleging negligence and other counts.
According to the complaint, between Dec. 4 and Dec. 27, 2011, Mae Hudson was a patient at Roseland Community Hospital in Chicago. The plaintiff alleges the defendants allegedly failed to properly assess Hudson and she developed multiple pressure sores, which became infected and required surgical debridements and contributed to her death.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment of more than $50,000. He is represented by Michael F. Bonamarte and Colleen Mixan Mikaitis of Levin & Perconti in Chicago.
