Guardian blames nursing home operators for resident's injuries

By Philip Gonzales | Feb 17, 2017

CHARLESTON — A Kanawha County woman is suing Charleston nursing home operators, alleging their negligence caused injuries to a resident.

Elaine Daniels, as guardian of Gail Galloway filed a complaint Jan. 26 in Kanawha Circuit Court against 1000 Association Drive Operations LLC, doing business as Oak Ridge Center, and Genesis Healthcare LLC, alleging they breached their duties to uphold Galloway's nursing home resident's rights.

According to the complaint, beginning in July 2011, Galloway was a nursing home resident at Oak Ridge Center. During the period when she was under the defendants' care, the suit says, she sustained serious injuries resulting in pain and suffering mental anguish and medical expenses. 

The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to provide a safe environment, failed to provide adequate supervision and safety devices to prevent accidental falls and failed to keep Galloway and her family members fully informed of her medical condition.

Daniels seeks trial by jury, judgment for all damages allowable by law, punitive damages, attorney fees and all other equitable relief. She is represented by attorneys Andrew L. Paternostro, Jeff D. Stewart and Shayla M. Rigsby of The Bell Law Firm PLLC in Charleston.
