Rosewood Care Center in Edwardsville

Rosewood Care Center in Edwardsville is being sued by a former resident's widow for negligence.

Seeking more than $50,000 in damages, Martha Flanary claims the long-term care facility failed to properly care for her husband, Gerald Flanary, after he was admitted Dec. 4, 2003. The suit, filed Aug. 16 in Madison County Circuit Court, does not indicate when or if Gerald died at Rosewood Care Center.

Flanary is represented by East Alton attorneys Robert H. Gregory and Gil Gherardini.

She claims the staff at Rosewood Care Center failed to consult with physicians or family members after Gerald developed a pressure ulcer on his left heel.
