Daughter alleges medical negligence in mother's death

By Noddy A. Fernandez | May 1, 2018

WINFIELD — A surviving daughter is suing a Hurricane nursing home facility, alleging failure to take proper care of its residents.

Paula R. Osborne of Painesville, Ohio, as personal representative of the estate of Mary Ann Osborne, filed a complaint March 30 in Putnam Circuit Court against 590 North Polar Fork Road Operations LLC doing business as Teays Valley Center and Genesis Healthcare, LLC alleging the defendants failed to provide residents their nursing care needs in accordance with regulations promulgated in the West Virginia Code of State Rules and the Code of Federal Regulations.

According to the complaint, on April 24, 2017, Mary Ann Osborne was admitted to Teays Valley for rehabilitation and assistance with her activities of daily living. However, the suit says during Osborne's residency, she suffered progressive deterioration and became infected with pressure wounds. 

As a direct and proximate result, the suit says, Osborne suffered systematic abuse and neglect causing significant injuries, ultimately leading or contributing to her death June 4, 2017. 

The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to provide health care services in compliance with state law and applicable federal and state rules and regulations and with acceptable professional standards and principles applicable to providing services at the nursing home facility.

Paula R. Osborne seeks trial by jury, all damages allowable under West Virginia law, attorney fees, and punitive damages, plus any other relief the court deems fit. She is represented by attorneys Jeff D. Stewart, Andrew L. Paternostro and S. Andrew Stonestreet of Stewart Bell, PLLC in Charleston.
