Eadie Hill Trial Lawyers File Wrongful Death Suit in Cuyahoga County, Ohio

The attorneys at Eadie Hill Trial Lawyers have filed a complaint in the case of Sybrina Allen vs. Wickkiffe Country Place Limited and 3G Operating Company. According to the complaint, EHTL has filed a negligence, recklessness, and wrongful death action against the nursing home located at 1919 Bishop Rd in Wickliffe, Ohio.

Sybrina Allen was 55. She went to Wickliffe Counrty Place in October of 2017. She was admitted for rehabilitation to reverse a colostomy bag and chemotherapy for a colon cancer related tumor.

The complaint states the following:

Wickliffe staff ignored Sybrina Allen’s complaints of sensory changes in her legs and allowed the tumor in her lower back to compress her spinal cord causing paralysis of the lower body. Wickliffe Country Place further allowed Sybrina Allen to develop bedsores on her lower back. These conditions caused Sybrina Allen to experience physical, mental, and emotional pain and suffering, permanent physical injuries, and her death.

Sybrina Allen was victim of the neglect of those who were charged to care for her safety and well-being. The lawsuit brings charges of misleading advertising, systemic understaffing, negligence, and recklessness with the care of Sybrina Allen.

Underlying Causes

Systemic Understaffing is sadly a very common practice by nursing homes and nursing home administrators. When profit is the number one motivator for corporations, nursing home residents almost always suffer.

Sybrina Allen’s case is not different. The defendants in this case, Wickkiffe Country Place, failed to make sure that Sybrina was properly cared for through their operational, budgetary, and managerial choices and policies. By understaffing the facility, Wickkiffe Country Place put the financial gain of their company over the care of the residents they were paid to care for.

When nursing homes under-staff their facilities, it can be almost guaranteed that they will become negligent in the care of their residents. This was the case with Sybrina Allen. She was allowed to develop bedsores and a significantly worsening of her condition because of their lack of care—which led to her death—a death that could have been prevented.
