Tragically, poor care has become and accepted part of life for the more than 1 million people living in nursing homes across the country.
As more corporations enter the skilled nursing industry with a primary motive of exuding maximum profits from each patient, corners get inherently cut and services get reduced or eliminated. The end result is that nursing home patients are suffering high rates of injuries during their admissions. Indications of inferior care may be:
- Pressure sores
- Weight loss
- Emotional withdrawal
- Unexplained bruises or fractures
- Medication errors
- Repeated hospitalization
- Sudden death
- Patients who have wandered from the facility
In addition to strongly worded regulations on a federal level, Illinois nursing home patients are protected by the state’s Nursing Home Care Act, which was specifically created to empower nursing home patients and their families with the power to prosecute instances of: abuse, neglect and inferior care.Illinois Nursing Home Attorneys Representing Your Interests
