CHARLESTON — An estate administrator is suing nursing home facility operators, citing alleged violation of residents' rights.
William Hensley, administrator of the estate of Luther Hensley, filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against St. Albans Operating Company LLC, et al., alleging that they failed to provide appropriate and adequate health care and protective and support services.
According to the complaint, William Hensley alleges that at various times between 2015 and 2018, Luther Hensley was a resident at the defendants' nursing home facility. As a result of their negligent acts and omissions, he suffered multiple falls with an acute coccyx fracture and pressure-related injuries that resulted in needless pain and suffering. He died on Oct. 29, 2018.
The plaintiff holds St. Albans Operating Company LLC, et al. responsible because they allegedly failed to provide an environment free of accident hazards and failed to provide adequate supervision and assistance to their residents.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks 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 S. Andrew Stonestreet of Stewart | Bell PLLC in Charleston.
