The family of Anibal Calderon has filed a wrongful death lawsuit in Cook County, Illinois against Oak Park Health Care Center after another resident of the facility beat Calderon to death.

According to the lawsuit, a facility resident who had a violent criminal background beat 80-year old Calderon. Calderon, who suffered from dementia, was later found unconscious, and transferred to Rush Oak Park Hospital, then to Rush University Medical Center, and died of blunt head trauma and brain injuries two days later.

The lawsuit claims that Oak Park violated state and federal nursing home regulations when they failed to protect Calderon from neglect and abuse. It also claims that the nursing home failed to provide adequate supervision, ignored complaints about residents and staff, failed to promptly report suspected incidents of abuse, and failed to employ enough staff to properly supervise and monitor residents, the Sun Times reported.
