Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against Nursing Home Concerning COVID-19

Wrongful death lawsuits are often filed in instances where a nursing home resident’s death appears to be due to negligence. The subject of nursing home wrongful death lawsuits is further discussed on the “Illinois Nursing Home Wrongful Death Lawsuits” page. Examples of situations in which a wrongful death situation may exist are provided on that page. As well, on this site there are posts of various wrongful death lawsuits involving alleged nursing home negligence. Most of these lawsuits are against Illinois health care facilities. Those posts can be found under the “Wrongful Death Lawsuits” category.

An Illinois wrongful death lawsuit filed against a nursing home has been filed against Bria of Geneva. This suit is discussed in a variety of media sources, including the May 18, 2020 wgntv.com article titled “Bria of Geneva nursing home faces wrongful death lawsuit.” Two excerpts:

A local nursing home where a quarter of the residents died from COVID-19 is being sued by the family of a 97-year-old woman who says they want to hold Bria of Geneva accountable.

One of the more distressing allegations in this lawsuit is that the family of Helen Osucha had no idea she was suffering with COVID-19 until the funeral home told them.

also:

About a year ago, the family moved Osucha to Bria of Geneva. They last saw her in March just before the facility was locked down because of coronavirus. Osucha died April 26 at 97 years old.

Colwell said they had no idea she was sick until they got a call saying she died. “The funeral home gave us Helen’s death certificate and on that death certificate it says that she was ill for one week prior to her death,” he said. “And then, it lists COVID as the cause of her death.”

As stated in the article, the wrongful death lawsuit accuses Bria of Geneva of negligence.

Also as stated in the article are statistics with regard to the number of COVID-19 cases and deaths that have occurred in Brea of Geneva.

Additional details and possible updates can be seen in a variety of media sources, including the article mentioned above.

Elopement Incidents That Lead To Injuries And Fatalities

“Elopement” (or wandering) from health care facilities (such as nursing homes and assisted living facilities) is a continuing potential hazard for residents in these facilities.  This wandering has been discussed before on this site.  If patients wander outside of the facility, they can be placed in jeopardy, especially since many who wander from the facility have dementia or other mental health impairments. There have been many elopement incidents that have led to the death of the nursing home resident.

Often, incidents of this type that lead to a fatality is followed by the resident’s family filing a lawsuit claiming negligence in the care of the resident.

Recently there has been a wrongful death lawsuit filed over the alleged elopement incident that led to an accidental fatal fall. The Philadelphia health care facility was
a continuing care retirement community (CCRC).

The wrongful death lawsuit is discussed in the March 20, 2019 Philly.com article titled “Philadelphia retirement home sued over death of woman who fell 15 feet onto sidewalk“: 

An excerpt from the article:

The family of a 78-year-old woman with dementia who wandered from a Northwest Philadelphia retirement community and fell to her death sued the facility and its security firm on Wednesday, accusing them of negligence and wrongful death.

According to the suit, filed in Common Pleas Court, Barbara Jones-Davis, who was visually impaired because of glaucoma and had a history of wandering, left Wesley Enhanced Living at Stapeley, also known as Stapeley Hall, in Germantown through a side door on July 8, 2018, at 5:36 p.m. Video surveillance shows her walking alone outside for 23 minutes.

As further discussed in the article, Jones-Davis apparently fell from the property onto a sidewalk 15 feet below, and suffered serious injuries including brain trauma (a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain).

Additional details regarding elopement incidents and their consequences can be seen in the sources mentioned above.

Nursing Home Falls As A Reason For Filing A Lawsuit

Nursing home falls continue to be a significant cause for concern in Illinois nursing homes.  As discussed on the “Falls In Illinois Nursing Homes” page,  falls occur on a fairly frequent basis, as seen in many statistics.  Additionally, as seen in statistics, media reports, and lawsuits against Illinois nursing homes, significant if not substantial injuries typically occur when residents fall.

Recently, there was a lawsuit filed over the alleged negligent treatment of an Illinois nursing home resident.  Among the resident’s alleged injuries that were caused during the fall were brain trauma that caused a brain bleed.

The lawsuit is discussed in various media sources, including the September 13, 2018 Madison Record article titled “Swansea Rehabilitation & Health Care Center face lawsuit over patient injured in fall” as well as the September 21 bnd.com article (with video) titled “Family says wife found man with twisted leg, ‘his teeth hanging out’ at Swansea center.”

An excerpt from the bnd.com article:

A family is suing after they say a 76-year-old man’s wife found him in a wheelchair Dec. 27, 2017 with his eyes glazed over, his leg twisted behind the chair and his teeth hanging out after five days into living at Swansea Rehabilitation and Health Care Center.

That same day, Windsor Keller’s family says he had fallen down in the facility.

Another excerpt, regarding the lawsuit and its claims:

According to the suit, the nursing home knew that Keller was at a higher risk for falling, noting that he had two falls within the last three months and required assistance to stand.

Five days later, on Dec. 27, 2017, the suit states Keller had a fall at the rehab facility. His wife Constance said she found him after the fall that afternoon “sitting in a wheelchair with his right leg twisted behind the chair, with his teeth hanging out and with his eyes glazed over in distress.”

Keller was taken to Memorial Hospital, according to the lawsuit, where he was diagnosed with a brain bleed and a fractured femur. When he was admitted to Swansea Rehab as a resident, the suit states Keller did not have any signs of brain bleeding or a fractured femur.

Additional details regarding nursing home falls and the allegations made with regard to Windsor Keller’s care can be seen in the sources mentioned above.

Bed Sores And Associated Lawsuits Concerning The Harm They Cause

Bed sores (also commonly referred to as pressure sores, bedsores, and pressure injuries) can be highly problematical if allowed to develop and worsen. One of the most common types of nursing home neglect lawsuits (and, if applicable, wrongful death lawsuits) concern the formation and accompanying harm caused by bed sores. In these lawsuits, negligent health care is often alleged by plaintiffs. Pressure sores, and the harm they can cause, are further discussed on the “Pressure Sores” page. An excerpt:

Regardless of why the pressure sores have developed, it is absolutely imperative that they are treated immediately in a proper manner.  This is so that they don’t worsen in condition, which can lead to a range of various adverse health conditions – and possibly lead to death.  There have been many recent lawsuits – some in the Chicago area as well as elsewhere in Illinois – in which bedsores have been alleged to have caused serious injuries to nursing home residents, and in some cases – as seen in wrongful death lawsuits – the deaths of nursing home residents.

A recent lawsuit in which the formation and worsening of bed sores is alleged is discussed in the September 19, 2018 Madison Record article titled “Willow Creek Rehabilitation & Nursing Center named in wrongful death suit.” An excerpt concerning the decedent, Lisa Stanton, and the alleged negligent care she received prior to her death:

According to the complaint, Stanton was admitted to Willow Creek Rehabilitation & Nursing Center in May 2016. As a result of the nursing facility’s negligence, Stanton suffered an urinary tract infection, severe bed sores and deep tissue injuries. She died later that month. The plaintiff alleges the nursing facility failed to implement preventive measures to avoid pressure ulcers and infections.

Additional details regarding bed sores and the severe harm they can cause can be seen in the sources mentioned above.

Pressure Sores That Occur In Illinois Nursing Homes

Pressure sores (also commonly referred to as pressure injuries, pressure ulcers and bed sores) continue to be a major potential threat to residents of nursing homes and other long-term health care facilities, such as assisted living facilities.  On this site, pressure sores are further discussed on the “Pressure Sores” page, and individual posts concerning pressure sores are seen under the “bedsores” category.

Nursing home residents often have characteristics, including age, that makes them more vulnerable to the development of pressure sores.  If these pressure sores are allowed to worsen – and go untreated – there can be a variety of adverse health impacts.

Often, the development of pressure sores and the accompanying injuries – which can lead to a fatality – leads to the filing of a lawsuit.  These lawsuits often allege negligence in the health care provided to the nursing home resident.

One of these adverse health impacts that can occur from pressure sores is infection.

The Chicago Tribune published an article (with videos) on September 5, 2018 titled “In Illinois’ understaffed nursing homes, deadly infections persist from bedsores and common injuries that go untreated.”  The article discusses various issues concerning Illinois nursing home residents that have developed infections, and also discusses sepsis and septic shock.

Notable excerpts from the article include:

Year after year, nursing homes around the country have failed to prevent bedsores and other infections that can lead to sepsis, an investigation by Kaiser Health News and the Chicago Tribune has found.

No one tracks sepsis cases closely enough to know how many times these infections turn fatal.

However, a federal report has found that care related to sepsis was the most common reason given for transfers of nursing home residents to hospitals and noted that such cases ended in death “much more often” than hospitalizations for other conditions.

also:

In Illinois, about 6,000 nursing home residents a year who were hospitalized had sepsis, and 1 in 5 didn’t survive, according to Definitive’s analysis.

also, with regard to infection control:

Poor infection control ranks among the most common citations in nursing homes. Since 2015, inspectors have cited 72 percent of homes nationally for not having or following an infection control program. In Illinois, that figure stands at 88 percent of homes.

Illinois falls below national norms for risks of pressure sores or failure to treat them properly in nursing homes. Inspectors have cited 37 percent of the nation’s nursing homes for this deficiency, compared with 60 percent in Illinois, according to CMS records. Only three states were cited more frequently.

A description of sepsis is provided, and a video in the article further discusses sepsis and septic shock.

The article also discusses various lawsuits filed over the development of pressure sores and their health complications.

Additional details concerning pressure sores and infections in nursing home residents can be seen in the sources mentioned above.

Theft Of Opioid Drugs From Illinois Nursing Residents In Bloomington And Normal

There are many potential problems related to the administration of drugs, including opioid drugs, to residents in Illinois health care facilities, including nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and other long-term care facilities.  Medications can be improperly prescribed or improperly administered.  Should this occur, the adverse health consequences can be wide-ranging and highly significant.  On this site, posts that discuss problematical issues with regard to medications are found under the “medications” category.

A recurring issue with regard to the administration of drugs to nursing home residents is whether prescribed drugs are actually given to the intended person.  Unfortunately, there have been many instances in Illinois – as well as nationally – in which a member of the nursing home staff has stolen drugs that were intended for nursing home residents.  This theft, which is often referred to as “drug diversion,” can happen for a number of reasons.  Typically, the staff member that steals the drugs wants them for their own use, or to sell the drugs for money.

Although many types of drugs can be stolen, among the most common types of drugs that are stolen are opioid drugs and other types of painkillers.

If the nursing home resident’s drugs are stolen instead of being administered it can create a situation where there can be a range of adverse health impacts, ranging from unnecessary pain to potentially life-threatening situations.

The August 4, 2018 Bloomington Pantagraph, in an article titled “Ex-nurse gets 4 years for stealing opioid patches from patients” discusses an alleged instance of stealing opioid patches from two Illinois (in Bloomington and Normal) nursing home residents who were terminally ill.

Additional details regarding this drug diversion issue, particularly as it relates to opioid drugs, can be seen in the sources mentioned above.

Pressure Sores Health Issues And The Filing Of Lawsuits

As often discussed on this site, pressure sores health issues are often a sign of neglect.  If pressure sores (also commonly referred to pressure ulcers, pressure injuries, bed sores and bedsores) develop and worsen, it is often a sign that quality of health care received is inadequate.

If pressure sores develop, they can – and often do – worsen if prompt and proper medical care is not received.  In addition to the pressure sores health issues that can arise from serious pressure injuries, there are a variety of other adverse health conditions that often accompany the decline in health.  As seen in many Illinois nursing home incidents in which serious pressures sores have developed and worsened, it is not uncommon for such pressure sore injuries, if not reversed, to lead to the death of the resident.

A common complaint regarding the development of pressure sores is that such injuries should not develop – i.e. they are preventable if various basic precautions are taken.  As such, if pressure sores develop and worsen negligence on the part of the health care provider (nursing home, assisted living facility, etc.) is often alleged.  In cases where the nursing home resident dies following the development of pressure sores, such deaths have often led to the filing of wrongful death lawsuits.

An example of an Illinois claim of negligence – as seen in a wrongful death lawsuit filed in Madison County – is discussed in the June 1, 2018 Madison Record article titled “Rosewood Care Center accused of failing to provide adequate medical care.”  An excerpt:

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between Oct. 13, 2016, and Jan. 9, 2017, Norma Sethaler was a resident at Rosewood Care Center of Edwardsville. The complaint alleges she sustained injuries including multiple pressure ulcers and an infection while at the facility, which caused and contributed to her death on Sept. 16, 2017.

The plaintiff alleges the defendants breached their duties to provide suitable and adequate medical, nursing and personal care to their residents, including the decedent.

Additional details regarding these pressure sores health issues as well as associated wrongful death lawsuits can be seen in the sources mentioned above.

Illinois Nursing Home Nurse Charged With Neglect In Fatal Incident

There was an incident in a Collinsville, Illinois nursing home in which a nursing home employee was charged with neglect.

The incident happened on June 30, 2017 at the Collinsville Rehabilitation and Health Care Center.  The incident involved a nursing home nurse allegedly failing to provide CPR to a nursing home resident that had suffered a heart attack.  The resident, identified as Eunice Vancil, died following the incident.

An excerpt regarding the incident and charges from the April 3, 2018 bnd.com article titled “Police:  Collinsville IL nursing home nurse didn’t perform CPR“:

A nursing home employee accused of not performing CPR on a resident allegedly saw that the resident had blue lips and was not breathing, according to an Illinois Department of Public Health report.

That employee, 41-year-old Christy McCall of Belleville, was charged March 28 with neglect in the death of the 81-year-old resident on June 30, 2017 at the Collinsville Rehabilitation and Health Care Center.

Another excerpt, from the April 8 Alton Daily News article titled “Former Nursing Home Employee Faces Charges“:

An Illinois Department of Public Health Report says the resident was found with no pulse and purple lips and was unresponsive. McCall is alleged to have not entered the room of the patient despite being aware of the patient’s condition. Bail is set at $25,000.

Additional details and possible updates concerning this incident of alleged Illinois nursing home neglect can be found in a variety of media sources, including the sources mentioned above.

Opioids Allegedly Stolen From Nursing Home Residents

Medications and prescriptions that are given to residents in Illinois nursing homes (as well as other health care facilities such as assisted living facilities) can be problematical for many reasons.  Medications can be improperly prescribed, improperly administered, or stolen for a variety of reasons.  If this occurs, the adverse health consequences can be significant if not substantial.  On this site, posts that discuss issues with regard to medications are seen under the “medications” category.

A recurring issue with regard to the administration of drugs to nursing home residents is whether prescribed drugs are actually given to the intended person.

Unfortunately, there have been many instances in Illinois as well as nationally in which nursing home staff have stolen drugs that were intended for nursing home residents.  This theft, which is often referred to as “drug diversion,” can happen for a number of reasons.

Two reasons for this “drug diversion” is that the nursing home staff member wants to use the drugs for their own use (which is more likely if they are addicted to the drug) or the staff member wants to sell the drugs.  Certain types of medicines can be very valuable to sell.

If the nursing home resident’s drugs are stolen – and therefore not administered – it can create a situation where there can be a range of adverse impacts, ranging from unnecessary pain or potentially dangerous adverse health consequences.

There has been an alleged incident in which a nurse stole opioid patches from nursing homes in Bloomington and Normal in late February.

The theft is discussed in The Pantagraph article of March 2, 2018 titled “B-N nurse accused of taking opioid patches from residents.”  An excerpt:

A Bloomington man is accused of removing opioid patches from the bodies of residents at two local nursing homes, including one where he worked as a registered nurse.
