Pristine Fremont’s Neglect of Mary Body

According to the lawsuit, Pristine Fremont failed to provide the proper care for Mary Body. Eadie Hill Trial Lawyers alleges that Pristine Fremont failed to put into place the proper precautions to prevent Mary from falling.

Upon being admitted to a short term rehabilitation stay at Pristine Fremont, Mary displayed risks of falling that were ignored and not reported by staff at Pristine Fremont. They knew that she was at risk for falling and they were aware of this. Yet, they failed to prevent her for suffering from a horrific fall that ultimately led to her death.

In addition to failing to prevent her from falling they failed to respond to her medical needs after she fell. They also failed to provide adequate staff to handle Mary’s injuries after she fell.

Further, they did not provide accurate and timely information to Mary’s family. They found her when she fell, covered in blood, and they discovered her unconscious in her room. They failed to notify the family of the demise of Mary. She displayed symptoms and signs of a severe head injury, yet, they never transferred her to a hospital for the care that she needed.

The staff at Pristine Fremont neglected Mary Blody and failed to provide her with a safe environment and it ultimately led to her death.

According to nursing home abuse lawyer Michael Hill:

“Mary was a wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. We are all impacted by the quality of care at nursing homes, either directly or indirectly. Either we will spend time in a nursing home, or one of closes friends and loved ones will. Mary deserved respect, to live her final years with dignity, and to be protected from preventable injuries. She was denied these most basic rights.”

What’s the Purpose of a Nursing Home Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

The family has instituted suit against Close to Home. A wrongful death lawsuit in Ohio is brought on behalf of the surviving family members. The family hopes that this lawsuit will bring awareness to mistreatment at nursing homes and will prevent future injuries and assaults on nursing homes residents.

The family has hired nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers Michael Hill and William Eadie of Eadie Hill Trial Lawyers.
