CHARLESTON – A former resident of a Charleston nursing home facility has filed a suit over the care he received there.
Kenna J. Wayne filed a complaint Sept. 20 in Kanawha Circuit Court against 699 South Park Road Operations LLC, doing business as Kanawha Place and formerly known as Quarry Manor, and Genesis Healthcare LLC alleging negligence and other counts.
According to the complaint, between Dec. 23, 2015, and Aug. 25, 2016, he was a resident at and under the care of defendants' nursing facility Quarry Manor for rehabilitation and assistance. The suit states that during this time, the plaintiff fell and suffered a fracture and that the defendants failed to keep him free from abuse of a co-resident.
The plaintiff holds 699 South Park Road Operations LLC and Genesis Healthcare LLC responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide health care services in compliance with state law and failed to care for him in such a manner as to promote maintenance or enhancement of his quality of life.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all damages allowed by law, punitive damages and all other relief as the court sees fit to award. He is represented by Jeff D. Stewart, Andrew L. Paternostro and Shayla M. Rigsby of The Bell Law Firm PLLC in Charleston. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge James C. Stucky.
