EDWARDSVILLE – A resident of a health care facility has filed suit over injuries she sustained after a fall.
Sherry Mazzarella filed a complaint on July 25 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Wood River Healthcare & Rehabilitation Center LLC, doing business as Integrity HC of Wood River, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Jan. 25, she was left unattended in the bathroom of the defendant's facility. The suit states that as she was attempting to return herself to her bed, she fell, causing her to sustain a hip fracture, knee injury, contusions and abrasions and further suffer great pain and anguish and permanent disability. The plaintiff holds Wood River Healthcare & Rehabilitation Center LLC responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide immediate medical treatment after the accident, negligently failed to provide assistance and failed to ensure that she was free from neglect.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants in the sum of more than $50,000, costs of this suit and such other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Robert H. Gregory of Law Offices of Robert H. Gregory in East Alton.
