Oakbrook Health and Rehabilitation Center nursing home in Summerville, S.C. is facing two wrongful death claims. One claims a resident died from neglect and reckless treatment and care. The suit says the woman suffered harm and died as a consequence of the neglect for failing to supervise and monitor this woman’s vital signs and failed to document and notify physicians of changes in her condition.
In February of 2019, DHEC investigated complaints of residents receiving medication late and there were more than 2,000 pages of documents on late administration and late charting of resident medications.
The suit says Oakbrook Health and Rehabilitation Center failed to notify the nurse until about nine hours later and did not sent her to the hospital. EMS was finally called later that day and the woman was admitted for an accidental overdose along with another infection.
The woman was able to return to the nursing home and then a month later she fell in the bathroom because of poor supervision.
