The Incident

A 74-years old woman with a long history of rheumatoid arthritis and partial dementia was admitted to a Chicago area nursing facility for rehabilitation care. She had deconditioned during a recent hospital stay to treat sickness and dehydration. She had mobility limitations. Staff apparently failed to adjust their treatment when she developed a urinary infection after two weeks in the facility. She experienced a fall in the middle of the night that caused a severe head injury. The brain trauma led to her death. She left behind a husband of 55 years.
