Nursing homes in Illinois are regulated by the Illinois Department of Health (IDPH), and are governed by the Nursing Home Care Act (210 ILCS 45). The IDPH website can be accessed here. Complaints against Illinois nursing homes can be made via the hotline 800-252-4343.
Do You Have Additional Questions Concerning the Care of a Family Member in an Illinois Nursing Home?
While the Illinois Department of Health has the capacity to conduct an investigation into an incident or an ongoing string of poor care, the agency does not have the capacity to help families pursue a nursing home negligence case in civil court. Nor does reporting an incident to IDPH, preserve the statute of limitations for a nursing home abuse or wrongful death lawsuit.
As attorneys who are committed to holding nursing homes accountable for poor care that results in a patient injury or death, Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC represents families in civil lawsuits against nursing homes. Illinois law provides for families to recover compensation for injuries caused by the negligence of a nursing home.
Our office handles nursing home negligence cases on a contingency fee basis, where there is no fee charged unless we are successful in a recovery for you. We invite you to contact our office today for a free review of your situation and legal rights for a recovery.
