CHARLESTON — A Kanawha County woman is suing Charleston nursing home facility operators, alleging negligence led to her mother's death.
Tonya G. Schwaiger, administrator of the estate of Danna M. Bryant, filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Charleston Medical Center, Dunbar Center and Genesis Healthcare LLC, alleging they failed to provide Bryant with her nursing home resident's rights.
According to the complaint, during Bryant residency at Charleston Medical Center, the defendants failed to provide a safe environment. The suit says Bryant suffered pressure-related skin injuries, sepsis, mental anguish, pain and suffering, all contributing to her death Feb. 15, 2018.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to provide adequate supervision and assistance and failed to provide adequate health care and protective support services.
Schwaiger seeks trial by jury, all damages allowed by law, attorney fees, costs and all other just relief. She is represented by attorneys Jeff D. Stewart, Andrew L Paternostro and S. Andrew Stonestreet of Stewart Bell PLLC in Charleston.
