How does nursing home negligence happen?

Abuse and negligence frequently occurs in all types of long-term care facilities including nursing homes, assisted living facilities and by home healthcare providers. We are committed to ensuring that negligence facilities and caregivers are held accountable when a nursing home resident is injured or killed in an Illinois nursing home. It is crucial for the spouses, adult children, family and friends of nursing home residents to know and be able to identify the most common forms of nursing home abuse and neglect so that they may take action if their loved one falls victim to nursing home negligence.

What are common types of nursing home negligence?

We see many different types of nursing home abuse and neglect cases. Some of the most common signs of abuse or neglect include:

  • Falls in nursing homes
  • Bruises or cuts
  • Bed sores
  • Medication errors
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Over-medication

Having a loved one in a nursing home can be stressful. This stress only increases if your loved one is injured by the negligence of the people that are supposed to be caring for them.
