Unfortunately, many nursing facilities are managed with insufficient staff or poorly trained nurses and nurse’s aides due to inattentive supervisors and lack of quality management. As a result, many nursing home residents become the victim of serious abuse, mistreatment and neglect at the hands of their caregivers. The track record of many facilities lead to numerous complaints filed against investigators, state surveyors, residents and family members.
Our team of dedicated advocacy attorneys help protect the rights of residents who have been victimized by residing in nursing facilities throughout the state of Illinois. We provide much-needed publicly available information concerning filed complaints and opened investigations on the safety concerns of nursing homes, assisted living centers and recreational facilities statewide. Many families use this data to make the best informed decision before placing their loved one under the care of a nursing home.
