The Chicago Tribune reports that the family of a nursing home resident who died last week filed an Illinois nursing home abuse lawsuit against the facility where she lived.
The victim froze to death when she wandered outside into the courtyard of the nursing home. She was found in the courtyard after being outside for about 90 minutes in freezing cold temperatures. The Chicago nursing home abuse victim was wearing an ankle bracelet that should have triggered an alarm when she went outside.
Although prosecutors are investigating this Chicago nursing home abuse case, the family of the deceased is planning to conduct its own investigation.
