Wrongful death lawsuit filed against Caseyville nursing home

Posted by: Briskman Briskman Greenberg

A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against a Caseyville nursing home over the death of a resident who developed gangrene and had her leg amputated.

Stephanie Strickland filed the lawsuit in St. Clair County Circuit Court as the special administrator of Carolyn Strickland’s estate. The defendant is Caseyville Nursing and Rehabilitation Center Inc.

The lawsuit claims that while Carolyn Strickland was a resident of the nursing home, she received negligent care and developed osteomyelitis, ulcers and gangrene, which necessitated the amputation of her leg. The lawsuit also claims that she developed a post-surgical wound infection and sepsis, which contributed to her death.

The lawsuit claims that the nursing home was negligent in caring for Strickland. Stephanie Strickland, her daughter, is seeking over $50,000 in damages. She is currently represented by attorney Staci M. Yandle. However, Yandle currently has a pending nomination to serve as a federal judge in the Southern District of Illinois in Benton.

Nursing home neglect and abuse may be more prevalent than was previously thought. A recent study revealed that more than 30 percent of nursing homes in the U.S. have been cited for abuse. It is estimated that 2.1 million older Americans are the victims of abuse in nursing homes each year. Other evidence suggests that more than 90 percent of nursing homes fail to deliver needed care to residents.
