Posts tagged "Nursing Home Neglect"

Only 15 percent of US nursing homes receive good rating

Residents in Illinois who have elderly relatives that require nursing home care have good reason to worry about their safety and well being. There are too many reports about residents in these facilities where they should be protected and cared for instead being neglected or abused in some way. When the time comes to look for a place to receive good care for a loved one, some people may not know where to turn.

Types of elder abuse

Illinois residents who have elderly family members that need care and may need to live in a nursing home or assisted living facility have good reason to be concerned about the safety of their loved ones. Elder abuse is a serious problem that anyone who relies on the staff at these facilities should be aware of. Knowing the warning signs and types of abuse or neglect is one important way of keeping their relatives safe or knowing when to take action.

The Name in Nursing Home Neglect

We've previously posted about how it's difficult to find a good nursing home neglect attorney (CLICK HERE for article), and why. If you're looking for an attorney in this area, it's worth asking how many other cases they've handled. As you read our past article, you'll see that nursing home litigation is a difficult blend of different areas of law, and you need an experienced and versatile attorney who knows (1) good experts; (2) how to go to trial and put on a case to a jury; (3) administrative know-how in the world of nursing homes and regulatory law; (4) dealing with the State of Illinois' IDPH jargon and investigators; (5) and medical knowledge, among other things.
