CHICAGO – A resident of a Chicago long-term nursing care facility alleges the facility failed to protect her from falls.
Gail Clark filed a complaint on Oct. 25 in Cook County Circuit Court against Parkshore Estates Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, citing the Nursing Home Care Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges, in 2013, she was admitted to defendant's long-term nursing care facility for home and rehabilitative services and the defendant knew or should have known she was at a high risk of falls. She alleges she fell twice while under the defendant's care and sustained a concussion and fractured leg.
The plaintiff alleges the defendant failed to protect her from abuse and neglect, failed to provide restorative and rehabilitative measures to meet plaintiff's needs and failed to provide adequate supervision and monitoring to prevent falls.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for damages of more than $50,000, plus attorney fees and costs. She is represented by Tiffany Alberty of Law Offices of Steven J. Malman in Chicago.
