A South Side nursing home is being sued for wrongful death after one of its patients died from an alleged overdose of medication prescribed by her doctors.

In a lawsuit filed Wednesday in Cook County Circuit Court, a representative for Sonya Eli says the woman’s two doctors prescribed an inappropriate dosage and combination of medications, causing her death in January 2011.

The nursing center, Rainbow Beach Nursing Center, was negligent when it administered incorrect and excessive doses of medication to Eli and didn’t properly monitor and report her condition, the lawsuit states.
