Nursing Home Neglect

Many warning signs of nursing home abuse and neglect are overlooked or thought to be a common part of growing old.

Undue pain, abandonment, and premature death should not be part of the nursing home experience. The following Six Warning Signs could save the life of your parent or prevent serious pain and harm:

  • Weight Loss
  • Repeated Infection
  • Bedsores
  • Falls
  • Restraints

Under the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act, nursing homes are required by law to make sure residents receive an expected level of care and protection of their individual rights. Facing today’s economic realities, however, many nursing home owners and managers choose to take shortcuts in staff training, operations and security.

If you have a loved one who has suffered an injury or violation of rights because of negligence on the part of nursing home ownership, management, staff or other residents, you are entitled to fight for financial compensation. Often, a lawsuit is the only way to improve living conditions and stop illegal practices.
