Medical malpractice 01

HUNTINGTON – An Ohio man alleges that a Huntington nursing home failed to properly care for his late mother.

Michael W. Bennett, as personal representative of the estate of Norma J. Ashworth, filed a complaint on Oct. 4 in Cabell Circuit Court against Seventeenth Street Associations LLC, doing business as Huntington Health and Rehabilitation Center; SavaSeniorCare Administrative Services LLC; and SavaSeniorCare Consulting LLC alleging negligence and other counts.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that during nursing Norma Ashworth's residency at defendants' nursing home facility from Sept. 23, 2016, to Nov. 23, 2016, she suffered acute kidney injury, sepsis and toxic colitis. The plaintiff alleges that the defendants' alleged negligence contributed to her death on Nov. 28, 2016. 

The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide sufficient staff and supplies to meet resident's needs and failing to provide health care services in compliance with state and federal laws and regulations.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all damages allowed under state law, attorneys' fees, costs and all other relief that 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 Gregory L. Howard Jr.
