Jefferson City Manor, a care facility in Missouri, has been struck with a wrongful death lawsuit after a resident passed away from COVID-19 last year.
The lawsuit was brought forth by Deborah Testerman, who lost her father to COVID-19 last October. Testerman claims that her father, David Ousley, 84, contracted the disease while he was living in Jefferson City Manor. The lawsuit claims that Ousley contracted COVID-19 from an employee at the care facility and that the facility “failed to provide a sterile environment and prevent the spread of COVID-19.”
As of writing, Jefferson City Manor has not publicly responded to the lawsuit.
This suit was filed by HANRAHAN & NACY, P.C.
