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.

Margaret, Daisy and Bryan. This magnificent cohesive team led by Margaret represented us for my mom's nursing home wrongful death case. They were most patient and responded timely to many questions throughout the entire process. All demonstrated professionalism and extensive knowledge of case and state laws. Their in-depth investigative work uncovered details which were unknown to us and yet sadly confirmed our suspicions. We would recommend the Levin and Perconti Law firm and especially this team. Kathy and Ron
Mr. Levin, Mr. Perconti and the firm handled a medical malpractice suit for my family. During that time, my family and I suffered the loss of my mother. Mr. Levin and Mr. Peconti were more than just our lawyers. Words can’t really express our gratitude. My family and I will always be grateful for the compassion that they showed us. I want to thank you for what you did for my family, and for always being there for us. W.R., Medical Malpractice Client
Our deepest appreciation to the law firm of Levin & Perconti, and in particular to Margaret Battersby Black, in the handling of the lawsuit we field n behalf of our sister who sustained life-threatening injuries as a nursing home resident. Margaret’s representation, guidance, and professionalism gave us the sense that we could put our trust in Levin & Perconti and the final outcome proved that to be true. D.G., Nursing Home Client
I want to send my heartfelt thanks to John Perconti and the Levin & Perconti staff in taking our case. 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. M.R.Z., nursing home client
