The relative of a woman who was sexually abused in a La Salle, Illinois nursing home has filed a lawsuit against the nursing home for negligence seeking damages because the nursing home failed to protect the woman from abuse.
According to a report in the News Tribune serving North Central Illinois, the unidentified woman suffered a fractured pelvic bone in the sexual attack. In the suit, Henry Elzer also seeks damages for his relative because his relative also suffered a broken leg when she was dropped.
This poor woman seems to have suffered some extreme abuse at this nursing home with both a sexual abuse and an injury from being dropped.
