Attorneys for Patients Mistreated at Tower Hill Healthcare Center

Many individuals placing a loved one in a nursing facility often think that the care they will receive will be provided by highly trained, skilled professionals. Unfortunately, many facilities are staffed with untrained professionals who are unable to provide even the most basic standards of care, especially to individuals that require assistance with their activities of daily living (ADLs).

Our team of dedicated nursing home abuse advocacy lawyers work to maintain the rights, dignity and respect of every Illinois nursing home resident. In addition, we post the most current publicly available information outlining safety concerns, complaints and investigations filed against nursing facilities, assisted-living homes and rehabilitation centers statewide. We hope this information can assist families facing the gut-wrenching decision of where to place a loved one who requires the highest levels of health and hygiene care.

Nursing Facility Resident Safety Concerns

Currently, Tower Hill Health Care Center maintains an overall three out of five stars rating as compared to other facilities nationwide. This includes two out of five stars for health inspections and staffing and five stars for quality measures.

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case.

★★★★★
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong, Google User

This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim, Avvo User

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa, Avvo User
