Nursing Home Complaint filed against Rosewood Care Center of Elgin, Illinois

Argento Law Group, P.C. retained to represent a family in a claim against Rosewood Care Center of Elgin (owned by Bravo Care of Elgin, Inc.) for nursing home abuse and neglect and for violations of the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act (“Care Act”).

In plaintiffs’ complaint, they allege that their loved one was a resident at Rosewood Care Center in Elgin, Illinois for rehabilitative care following an amputation. At all relevant times, their loved one was prescribed “blood thinners.” In spite of being a known fall risk, Rosewood Care Center failed to take the necessary precautions to secure their loved one’s safety. As a result, in the middle of the night, their loved one fell and hit her head. Instead of transporting their loved one to the local hospital, Rosewood Care Center employees put plaintiffs’ loved one back into bed. Plaintiffs’ loved one died a few hours later from a subdural hematoma or from internal bleeding to the brain.

This cause is pending in the Circuit Court of Kane County, Geneva, Illinois. If you have questions about this case, or have experienced a similar incident of nursing home abuse or neglect, feel free to call the legal professionals of Argento Law Group, P.C. at (847) 628-8305.
