Marci DeLong has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Cheyenne HealthCare Center, alleging the nursing home neglected the care of her husband so badly that it caused his death. Cheyenne Healthcare Center is owned and operated by SavaSeniorCare. SavaSeniorCare is one of the largest national for-profit chains in the country. They have a terrible history of poor care, regulatory noncompliance, and short-staffing.
The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports Marci DeLong filed the lawsuit on June 18 against SavaSeniorCare, a Delaware company that owns and operates Cheyenne HealthCare Center. She is seeking damages for the February 2017 death of 49-year-old Robert DeLong.
Court records say Ronald DeLong was taken to the nursing home in September 2016 following complications from a stroke.
Nursing home staff took him to the hospital on Jan. 24, 2017. Doctors noted DeLong suffered acute kidney failure, upper GI bleeding, severe sepsis and urinary tract infections while under the care of the nursing home.
