Nursing Home Neglect: A Growing Problem

The number of Illinois nursing home residents has been on the rise as our population ages. When a person cannot live independently, families turn to these facilities to provide care and assistance with activities of daily living. Families place their trust in nursing homes to protect the safety and well-being of their loved ones and expect that nursing home staff will provide adequate care to all residents. Unfortunately, all too often, facilities breach this trust, and residents are injured as a result of abuse or negligence.

When nursing homes fail to follow the standard of care established by state and federal nursing home laws and a resident is injured or killed, families can take action to hold any and all wrongdoers accountable. Nursing home lawsuits send a message to providers that inadequate care will not be tolerated, and help to protect other residents from future abuse and neglect.

It is important that family members are aware of the signs and symptoms of abuse and neglect if they have a loved one living in a long-term care facility. Some of these include:

  • Bed sores
  • Falls
  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Medication errors
  • Overmedication
  • Burns
  • Clogged breathing tubes

Poor care or abuse should not be tolerated. If you suspect that a loved one has been injured as a result of abuse or neglect, you should contact an experienced attorney to discuss your legal options. There are time limitations for filing nursing home lawsuits, so act early to protect your rights.

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
