Controversy surrounds nursing home sale

People in Illinois who have to tackle the difficult task of selecting a care facility, residential home or other support for an aging relative know how challenging this can be. Reports of elder abuse and neglect detail some horrific acts that leave vulnerable residents and their families struggling to get help and make sense of the situations.

This reality is just one of the reasons that thorough investigations of any facility might be done by prospective families. These investigations might include physical site tours to examine the actual condition of the rooms and other amenities and facilities as well as to meet the onsite staff. In addition, these investigations might also include learning about the individuals or companies that own, operate and manage the facilities.

Fox Illinois recently reported that a county nursing home in Champaign County was sold to two people that many say have a very poor reputation for patient safety with respect to other nursing homes they own. The new owners are a father and son duo and other facilities owned by them have apparently experienced reports about staff failing to follow outlined procedures for life-saving efforts. Reports of patient neglect have also been cited.

Despite the concerns raised by some, the county voted in a large majority to approve the $11 million sale. While the future remains unknown at this point, it may be important that all Illinois residents consider talking with an attorney if they experience issues with nursing home care or the safety of their relatives.
