WASHINGTON - Dec. 30, 2023 - PRLog -- Civil Rights Lawyers, Kim Parker, Esquire and Governor Jackson, III, Esquire, have filed a Multi-Million Dollar lawsuit in the Superior Court for The District of Columbia, on behalf of their client, Rosezena Jackson, 75, a resident of the District of Columbia, regarding the egregious medical treatment received while she was a patient at Capitol City Rehab and Healthcare Center, in Southeast DC. Specifically, the then 74-year-old Mrs. Jackson was a patient at Capitol City, recuperating from a blood clot. For reasons unknown to her, Mrs. Jackson was provided another patient's medication, to which she was highly allergic. Consequently, Mrs. Jackson suffered an allergic reaction, resulting in her being intubated and placed in a medically induced coma, and spending 23 days in the hospital. In addition, her injuries were so severe, she had to have significant rehabilitation, including speech therapy. She will require future medical care for the remainder of her life.

Attorney Kim Parker stated, "Pharmacy errors in nursing homes and hospitals are preventable, yet all too common. In this case, Capitol City's negligence caused our client to suffer tremendously, and they tried to blame her rather than take responsibility. We will seek justice for Mrs. Jackson and her family."

Attorney Governor Jackson, III added, "Capitol City has a troubling history of subpar care and errors that have harmed vulnerable patients. We hope this lawsuit sends a message that this behavior will not be tolerated, and prompts needed changes at the facility."

The Complaint seeks $35,000,000 in compensatory and punitive damages. The Complaint also names Jacob Karmel,  and Moshe Stern, the Managing Members of Capitol, who are being sued in their official and individual capacities.

Superior Court Case Number 2023-CAB-007845.
