CHARLESTON – A Nicholas County resident is suing a nursing home on behalf of her mother, claiming neglect in her care.
Donna Flanagan, power of attorney for Gladys Ramsey, filed suit in Kanawha Circuit Court on Sept. 15 against the city of Summersville, doing business as Summersville Regional Medical Center; Webster Nursing and Rehabilitation Center LLC, doing business as Webster Nursing and Rehabilitation Center; and Wisteria LLC, citing negligence, statutory violations and reckless misconduct.
According to the complaint, Ramsey was a resident of the Webster facility from Aug. 27, 2014, to the time of the filing.
