Levin & Perconti filed a lawsuit earlier this month against Advocate Trinity Hospital in Illinois.
The suit alleges medical malpractice in the wrongful death of a 70 year old man who died when the hospital failed to observe, assess, evaluate and report the patient’s changing conditions to his doctor and family members. The man developed pressure ulcers which became infected due to inadequate care.
The hospital then failed to appropriately treat the infection and provide nutrition and hydration to the man. Eventually the man died of multiple infected pressure ulcers, malnutrition, dehydration and sepsis.
