Nursing home malpractice attorneyFebruary 22, 2012 (BELLEVILLE, Ill.) — The daughters of a 77-year-old man who was found dead last month partly submerged in a creek are suing the southwestern Illinois nursing home from which the man wandered.

Terri Dancy and Linda Woods filed the negligence lawsuit Tuesday in St. Clair County against Midwest Rehabilitation and Respiratory Center of Belleville and its management company, Senior Healthcare Management.

Authorities say Aubrey Giles suffered from dementia and heart disease and wandered away from the home two other times in the months leading up to his death.
