Wrongful Death Lawsuit Alleges Neglect In Care Of Illinois Nursing Home Resident

Nursing home neglect can take many forms, and can lead to a range of adverse outcomes, including death.  A recently filed Illinois wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against an Illinois nursing home, and this lawsuit claims that nursing home neglect contributed to a resident’s health decline and death.

The lawsuit was filed December 11, 2014 by Mary M. Crane, daughter of Jack W. Torum, the nursing home resident who died.  The lawsuit was filed in Madison County Circuit Court against the Alhambra Care Center.

The lawsuit is discussed in the December 22, 2014 Madison Record article titled “Daughter of deceased man files complaint against nursing home.”

An excerpt from the article:

She blames the nursing home for causing her father’s injuries, saying its employees negligently failed to observe Torum for any significant changes to his medical condition, failed to timely notify Torum’s physician or daughter of any changes to his physical or mental condition, failed to provide him with adequate hydration and nutrition, neglected Torum and failed to provide him with adequate medical care.

Additional details regarding the lawsuit and the alleged lack of proper nursing home care can be seen in the Madison Record article mentioned above.
