Failures in Care Practices Lead to Resident Complaints, Injuries at Aperion Care Morton Villa
Nursing homes are meant to be places of rest and comfort, where your loved one can recuperate from a hospital stay or live in peace, not end up back in one due to poor care. When you put your loved one in a nursing home, you trust the facility to treat your loved one with respect, care for them appropriately, and have all of their medical and daily needs met, 24 hours a day.
Unfortunately, nursing home abuse and neglect is a major problem not just in Illinois, but nationwide. When you read news stories or hear from friends about poor nursing home care and even negligence or abuse, you worry. What could be going on behind closed doors when you can’t be there?
Unfortunately, at Levin & Perconti, we have found that many Illinois nursing homes are failing to provide what is expected of them. Many facilities are providing insufficient care with careless incompetent staff (and in some cases outright abusive staff) with health violations that families of loved ones in their care may never know about.
We’ve made it our mission to fight for the families whose loved ones are being mistreated, exposing these facilities and their negligence, and making certain that they are held accountable for their actions. We fight on behalf of the families whose loved ones have been affected by these facilities and their poor practices. Read on to learn more about Aperion Care Morton Villa:

Not only were they so professional but also so caring and thoughtful. It was very difficult going over the facts in our mother's case but they were so compassionate and understanding and allowed us to be with them every step of the way. We were able to sit in on the depositions and we were really able to see how hard they worked on our behalf.
