HOUSTON – A woman alleges a health care facility failed to timely call 911 while her late mother was exhibiting respiratory distress.
Catrena Wilson, individually and on behalf of all wrongful death beneficiaries and as representative of the estate of Angelina Harrell, deceased filed a complaint on Jan. 3 in the Harris County District Court against Park Manor of Humble, et al. alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 27, 2017, the defendants admitted Harrell to their care, supervision and control at Park Manor of Humble. The suit states the defendants failed to place Harrell on a machine used to aide with breathing and she became hypoxic and anxious and eventually suffered respiratory distress and cardiopulmonary arrest. The suit states no one at the facility called 911 or instituted cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
The suit states Harrell died on Aug. 9, 2017, due to a brain injury, kidney injury and pressure ulcers.
The plaintiff holds Park Manor of Humble, et al. responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to protect decedent from mistreatment and neglect, failed to properly monitor, observe and assess her condition and failed to timely call 911.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all damages, with interest, costs, attorney's fees and such other and further relief to which she may be justly entitled. She is represented by David T. Marks, Jacques G. Balette, Jason N. Young and Henry P. Giessel of Marks Balette Giessel & Young PLLC in Houston.
