HUNTINGTON — A St. Albans woman is suing Huntington nursing facility operators, alleging negligence and reckless misconduct in the death of the plaintiff's mother.

Robin L. Turturice, as personal representative of the estate of Eurania F. Clendenen, filed a complaint in Cabell Circuit Court against Rebound LLC, doing business as Healthsouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Huntington, and Healthsouth Corporation, alleging they negligently deviated from the appropriate standards of medical care in treating Clendenen.

According to the complaint, between Jan. 18-31, 2017, Clendenen was a resident at the defendants' medical facility. As a result of defendants negligence, the suit says, she suffered a fall resulting in serious injuries, pain and suffering and ultimately her death Jan. 31, 2017. 

The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to maintain the premises in a safe and secure manner and failed to provide adequate supervision and assistance to prevent Clendenen from falling.

Turtrice seeks trial by jury, compensatory and punitive damages and attorney fees. She is represented by attorneys James D. Stewart, Andrew L. Paternostro and S. Andrew Stonestreet of Stewart Bell PLLC in Charleston.
