Lawsuit Filed for Neglect

The Telegraph reported that Tina Arnold, administrator of the estate of Helen R. Cline, a former patient at Eldercare of Alton, has filed a lawsuit in claiming the facility allowed the patient to develop an infection that led to her death.  The incident also was the subject of an investigation by the Illinois Department of Public Health, which issued a report that said the facility failed to provide adequate care and did not meet its legal requirements to prevent mistreatment of patients.  Cline suffered from septic shock, delirium, dehydration, extremely low blood pressure, bed sores, urinary tract infection and an excessive amount of a blood thinner, among other injuries and illnesses.
