VALPARAISO | A civil lawsuit has been filed against the local Whispering Pines Healthcare Center, accusing an employee of fracturing a resident’s hip by pulling or throwing the woman from her bed.

The incident occurred at 3:15 a.m. Nov. 27, 2007, just a week after Barbara Levin moved into the facility, according to the suit.
