HUNTINGTON -- A woman is suing six companies, an individual and multiple unknown individuals and entities for negligence in a nursing home.
Canyon Sudar Partners, SVCare Holdings, Sava Senior Care, SSC Equity Holdings, SMV Management Company, SMV Huntington and Unidentified Entities 1 through 10 are the companies named in the law suit. Huntington Health and Rehabilitation Administrator, Annica Stansberry, and John Does 1 through 10 were also named in the suit.
Faith Cole claims Ruth Haynie was a resident of Huntington Health and Rehabilitation from Sept. 20 until Nov. 1, according to a complaint filed Feb. 25 in Cabell Circuit Court.
Cole claims the defendants were aware of Haynie's medical condition and the care she required, but that during her stay, Haynie experienced falls, a fracture and a subdural hematoma.
Cole claims the defendants owed a duty to residents to exercise reasonable care in providing oversight and management of the nursing home.
The defendants breached their duty by failing to properly manage, operate and/or control the nursing home in a manner that a reasonably careful person/corporation would have provided.
Cole is seeking compensatory damages. She is being represented by James B. McHugh and Michael J. Fuller Jr.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge David M. Pancake.
Cabell Circuit Court case number: 10-C-167
