A suit was filed by an attorney-in-fact on behalf of a nursing home resident at New Athens Home for the Aged alleging that the resident sustained personal injuries because of the home’s negligence. The home’s neglect allegedly caused her a fractured left leg and right leg and dislocated right shoulder.
According to Gregory Krieg, on March 3 and June 7, Margaret Krieg suffered the injuries. Krieg filed the suit on November 26 in St. Clair County, Illinois Circuit Court.
The suit claims that during her time at New Athens, Margaret Krieg suffered severe and repeated pain, mental anguish, and distress. Gregory Krieg also claims that she has become further debilitated and disabled and incurred great medical expenses. The complaint also states that her ability to participated in ordinary activities and enjoy life has been adversely affected.
The suit alleges that Krieg’s injuries came about due to the nursing home’s violation of multiple provisions in “The Nursing Home Care Act.”
The home’s violations include its failure to evaluate Margaret Krieg in order to ensure that she received adequate supervision and assistance for prevention of accidents, failure to assess the risks associated with side rails, failure to appropriately update her care plan to address her history of failing, and failure to identify potential risk factors, according to Gregory Krieg.
Krieg seeks damages in excess of $50,000 in addition to costs.
