ST. LOUIS – A St. Louis woman alleges the negligence of a health care facility in the city caused her daughter's death.

Nedra Freeman, individually and as plaintiff ad litem for Leslie A. Meyers, deceased filed a complaint on March 13 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against C.M.C. Extended Care Center Inc., John Does and Jane Does alleging medical malpractice and wrongful death.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in June 18, 2015, her daughter, Leslie Meyers, was admitted to the care of defendants following a cerebral vascular accident or stroke. On the following day, the suit states Meyers' tracheostomy tube became dislodged and dislodged again on June 21, 2015, resulting in her death on June 21, 2015. 

The plaintiff holds C.M.C. Extended Care Center Inc., John Does and Jane Does responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to consult a respiratory therapist, failed to institute an updated care plan following decedent's dislodgment of tracheostomy tube the first time and failed to timely diagnose the dislodgment of the same on June 21, 2015.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages of more than $25,000, with interest, costs and all other relief that are just and proper. She is represented by James N. Guirl II of Guirl Law Firm in St. Louis.

St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court case number 1822-CC00520
