LOGAN – A Kistler woman alleges a Logan nursing home failed to provide a safe environment for her late ex-husband.

Wanda F. Cline, as personal representative of the estate of William E. Cline, filed a complaint Jan. 22 in Logan Circuit Court against Trinity Healthcare Services of Logan alleging negligence and wrongful death.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 26, 2014, William Cline was admitted at defendant's facility for rehabilitation assistance. As a result of defendant's alleged negligence, the plaintiff alleges her decedent developed unstageable pressure injuries, dehydration, malnutrition and infection, ultimately leading to his death on Nov. 5, 2016. 

The plaintiff holds Trinity Healthcare Services of Logan responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide adequate supervision and failed to provide adequate and appropriate health care and protective and support services consistent with the care plan.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all damages as well as all other items and relief that the court may sees fit to award. She is represented by Jeff D. Stewart, Andrew L. Paternostro and S. Andrew Stonestreet of Stewart Bell PLLC in Charleston. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Joshua Butcher.
