Nursing home sued for wrongful death of resident

November 24, 2009

The daughter of a nursing home resident who died after fracturing her hip is suing the home for wrongful death.

In September of 2008, Cindy Zerko, a resident at a Regency Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, fell out of her wheelchair, fracturing her hip. The fall took place when the residents where being evacuated because of Hurricane Ike.

Cindy Zerko’s daughter, Sharon Zerko, is now suing the Regency Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. In her Texas wrongful death lawsuit, Zerko alleges that the center was negligent in failing to “initiate an effective fall prevention program.” She further alleges that the center ignored her mother’s needs.

Cindy Zerko was treated at St. David’s Hospital in Austin, Texas, according to court papers. Her medical records indicate that she was doing poorly after the surgery. She was pronounced dead on September 29, 2008.
