Citation: Caruso v. Pine Manor Nursing Ctr., 538 N.E.2d 722 (II. App. Ct. 1989)


In Illinois, a nursing facility by statute ha s duty to provide its residents with proper nutrition. Under the nursing Home Care Reform Act, the owner and licensee of a nursing home are liable to a resident for any intentional or negligent act or omission of their agents or employees that injuries a resident. The act defines neglect as a failure of a facility to provide adequate medical or personal care or maintenance, when failure results in physical and mental injury to a resident or in the deterioration of the resident`s condition. Personal care and maintenance include providing food, water, and assistance with meals necessary to sustain a healthy life.

The nursing facility in this case maintained no records of the resident`s fluid intake and output. A nurse testified that such a record was a required nursing facility procedure that should have been followed for a person in the resident`s condition, but was not

The resident`s condition deteriorated after staying 6.5 days at the facility. Upon leaving the facility and entering a hospital emergency department, the resident was diagnosed by the treating physician as suffering from severe dehydration caused by an inadequate intake of fluids. The nursing facility offered no alternative explanation for the resident`s dehydration condition

The trial court found that the record supported a finding that the resident had suffered from dehydration as a result of the nursing facility`s negligence. The defendant appealed the jury verdict.


Did the nursing facility resident suffer harm as a result of the facility`s negligence?


The IIIinois Appellate Court upheld the trial court`s finding that the resident suffered dehydration due to the nursing facility`s negligence.


The evidence demonstrated that the proximate cause of the resident`s dehydration was the nursing facility`s failure to administer proper nourishment; therefore, the jury reasonably concluded that the nursing facility`s negligence caused the dehydration.
