(Premises Liability) On August 27, 2005, F-56 was visiting her father, who was a new resident at Halsted Terrace Nursing Center on its dementia unit (3-South). When she arrived that morning her father was not in the room, so she took that time to put away his toiletries and folded clothes in the bedside dresser, and hang up some of his clothes. After about thirty minutes of putting everything away, Plaintiff picked her handbag off the bed and turned to leave the room to go find where her father was at. The next thing she recalls is slipping and falling to the ground, and then she felt pain and smelled urine. The reason she fell was because she slipped in urine.

Injuries: Impingement syndrome left shoulder with full-thickness tear of rotator cuff. Plaintiff underwent surgery (anterior acromioplasty, subacromial decompression, and repair of torn rotator cuff) and physical therapy.
