Woman Sues Nursing Home

Nursing home resident, Rose Capriotti, 81, claims she was the victim of neglect and abuse during her two-month stay at Chicago Heights nursing. Capriotti was taken to Prairie Manor Nursing & Rehabilitation Center on March 23, 2006 to recover from a stroke. Within the first week of Capriotti being there nurses tried to sit her upright, balance being affected from her stroke she fell and hit her head and suffered numerous bedsores and possibly a second stroke from the fall. May 5 was the first time Prairie Manor staff noticed any bedsores and family members were unaware of the sores until she was admitted to the hospital on May 15. The lawsuit also alleges that the facility did not assess, evaluate and seek proper care for Capriotti.
