HUNTINGTON – A Cabell County man says a pattern of abuse and neglect at his grandmother’s nursing home allegedly contributed to her death. Jerry Slone, personal representative of the estate of Wanda Slone, filed a lawsuit April 8 in Cabell Circuit Court against Seventeenth Street Associates LLC (doing business as Huntington Health and Rehabilitation Center), SavaSeniorCare Administrative Services LLC, SavaSeniorCare Consulting LLC and administrator Annica Stansberry, alleging wrongful death, negligence, reckless misconduct and statutory violations.
According to the complaint, Wanda Slone resided at Huntington Health and Rehab from Dec. 17, 2014 to Jan. 19, 2015, where she required daily living assistance. The suit says Slone suffered from dehydration, colitis, infections and sepsis during her stay, deteriorating her overall mental and physical well-being. As a result of her injuries, she died of complications of sepsis on Jan. 22, 2015.
Jerry Slone seeks a jury trial and punitive and compensatory damages to be determined at trial. He is represented by attorneys Andrew L. Paternostro and Jeff D. Stewart of The Bell Law Firm PLLC in Charleston.
Judge Christopher D. Chiles is assigned to the case.
