HOUSTON — A Harris County woman is suing an assisted living home, alleging her mother was caused to die due to repeated falls.
Martyn Patterson, as personal representative of the estate of her mother Helen Patterson, deceased, filed a complaint April 3 in Harris County District Court against Pathways Memory Care at Villa Toscana, North Houston MC LLC and Stonegate Senior Living LLC, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, Helen Patterson was admitted to Pathways Memory Care on Dec. 1, 2017, for assisted living help. The suit says Patterson fell Feb. 3, 2018, and was taken to the West Houston Medical Center where she was shown to have facial fractures.
The suit alleges Patterson was readmitted to Pathways on Feb. 7, 2018, and was placed on fall risk. The complaint alleges she was caused to fall again March 9, 2018, and fell again March 17, 2018.
The suit says Patterson suffered complications that led to her death Oct. 4, 2018.
Marilyn Patterson seeks judgment between $200,000 and $1 million, trial by jury, actual damages, interest and all other just relief. She is represented by attorney Mary E. Green of Brown Christie & Green in Houston.
