GRAFTON – A Preston County woman says a pattern of abuse and neglect her mother allegedly suffered at Beulah Land Assisted Living led to her death last year.

Gale Turner, as personal representative of the estate of Patricia Splain (deceased), filed a lawsuit April 13 in Taylor Circuit Court against Beulah Land Personal Care Home LLC, doing business as Beulah Land Assisted Living, alleging professional malpractice, negligence, reckless misconduct and wrongful death.

According to the complaint, during Splain’s three-year residence at the home, she suffered injuries arising from neglect, including multiple falls and wound, dehydration, urinary tract infections and colitis. The suit says Splain passed away on April 28, 2015 allegedly as a result of systematic abuse and neglect by Beulah Land staff.


Turner seeks a jury trial, punitive and compensatory damages to be determined at trial, plus litigation costs. She is represented by attorney Andrew L. Paternostro and Jeff D. Stewart of The Bell Law Firm PLLC in Charleston.
