LOGAN – A Sarah Ann man has filed suit against a Logan nursing home over the care his decedent received there.
George Howes, as personal representative of the estate of Thelma M. Howes, filed a complaint Oct. 12 in Logan Circuit Court against Trinity Health Care Services of Logan Inc. alleging negligence and wrongful death.
According to the complaint, Thelma M. Howes was admitted to the defendant's facility in April 2016. The plaintiff alleges that during her residency at defendant's facility, she developed pressure injuries, dehydration, acute renal failure and urinary tract infections. The suit states these injuries ultimately contributed to her death on Oct. 24, 2016.
The plaintiff holds Trinity Health Care Services of Logan Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide proper supervision and failed to provide adequate staff.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek all damages, attorney's fees and such 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 Joshua Butcher.
