MEDIA — An estate representative is suing two nursing home operators, citing alleged breach of duty and negligence in the care of her mother.
Jeanet Harris, administratrix for the estate of the late Sherry Walker, filed a complaint June 1 in the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas against Wallingford Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and Wallingford PA LLC, which does business as Manorcare Health Services, alleging that the defendants breached their duties to patients/residents to provide adequate and appropriate healthcare.
According to the complaint, Walker was admitted to ManorCare Health Services - Wallingford on Aug. 19, 2016. Harris claims that, during Walker's time at the defendants' nursing home, she was deprived of adequate care and treatment, food and water and medications, causing her to suffer numerous illnesses and injuries.
Walker died Oct, 26, 2016, and Harris said it was discovered that Walker had clolelithiasis and abdominal/pelvic ascities.
The plaintiff said the nursing home is responsible because it allegedly failed to provide adequate and appropriate health care and failed to provide a safe, decent and clean living environment for residents.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a judgment in an amount in excess of $50,000, together with punitive damages, costs and other relief the court deems appropriate. She is represented by Andrel Govorov of Wilkes & McHugh, PC in Philadelphia , Pennsylvania.
