CHICAGO — A woman is suing a nursing home, citing alleged negligent supervision of her relative, now deceased.
Tammy Jefferson, as independent administrator of the estate of Carl Hale, filed a complaint on Feb. 6 in Cook County Circuit Court against Manorcare Health Services-Naperville, and others, for alleged violation of the Illinois Survival Act and the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act.
According to the complaint, between February-August 2017, Hale was a resident of Manorcare for supervision and assistance of daily living following his diagnosis with quadriplegia. Jefferson claims during Hale's residency he suffered a fall, broke his left hand, sprained his right ankle, and developed a deteriorating pressure sore, which all contributed to the deterioration of his health up to his death.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks more than $50,000. She is represented by Susan Novosad and Gabriel Aprati of Levin & Perconti in Chicago.
