Illinois Is No Place For Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect
Each year the Illinois Department of Public Health receives 19,000 calls reporting elder and nursing home abuse.
You’ve trusted your family member to an organization who has promised you a high standard of safety and care. The facility has a duty of care to ensure your loved one receives support and maintenance. Nursing home abuse is not just a breach of trust; it is a breach of the law. Fortunately there is something you can do.
Signs Of Nursing Home Abuse
A vulnerable loved one can be abused or taken advantage of in many ways. All of these are unacceptable. The following symptoms and signs may indicate abuse or neglect:
- Wandering, lack of appropriate supervision or insufficient staffing levels
- Bedsores, ulcers or other skin wounds or infections
- Falls, especially those leading to broken bones or other injury
- Malnutrition, unexplained weight loss or dehydration
- Over- or under-administration of medications
You often need legal help to hold a facility accountable, get needed compensation for treatment and to ultimately fix the situation. Our attorneys can help.
