EDWARDSVILLE — The special administrator of the Estate of Zittie B. Harris (deceased) is suing OSF Healthcare, alleging wrongful death.
Olivia A. Lacey filed a complaint on May 12, in the Madison County Circuit Court against OSF Healthcare alleging that the health care facility failed to inform the physician of Harris with regard to patient's change in clinical status.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, on Aug. 23, 2015, the decedent died due to negligence and acts of omission.
