Granite Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and Aurora Cares in Madison County, IL is being sued for personal injuries sustained by a former resident, Helen Norfleet. Norfleet was living at the nursing home when she sustained a fractured knee, a left hip injury and a kidney injury. When she was transferred to a hospital that same day, it was also discovered that she was significantly dehydrated. Norfleet’s health quickly deteriorated due to her injuries and condition, and she suffered from great pain and mental anguish and severe and permanent disability before her ultimate death.
The Illinois nursing home is allegedly at fault for causing Norfleet’s wrongful death in negligently failing to ensure that Norfleet received proper supervision, failing to maintain her clinical records, failing to properly notify her physician when her condition began to deteriorate, and failing to give her proper care. Norfleet’s representative in the suit seeks significant wrongful death damages. The nursing home plans to defend the case by filing a motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted. The nursing home alleges that the personal injuries resulted from influences beyond their control and they deny any responsibility for Norfleet’s death.
