CHICAGO — A woman is suing medical facilities, citing alleged negligence and wrongful death, in the care of her mother.
Carmille Barnes, as the co-independent executor of the estate of Vernida Robinson, filed a complaint on Feb. 21 in Cook County Circuit Court against Symphony of Crestwood, and Nucare Services for alleged violation of the Nursing Home Care Act.
According to the complaint, in January 2017, Vernida Robinson was admitted at defendants' facility for nursing rehabilitation and physical therapy services relating to her recovery from a bone fracture that required surgery. Plaintiff states she was at a high risk of developing blood clots.
However, plaintiff claims the resident did not receive proper medication and monitoring, as she was found dead in her bed a month later.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks more than $50,000 plus costs of suit. She is represented by David Statham and Stephanie Hovanec of Newman, Boyer & Statham in Chicago.
Cook County Circuit Court Case No. 19-L-001950.
