Aurora Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Attorneys

Aurora IL Nursing Home Ratings GraphNational statistics show that older adults residing in nursing care facilities are at risk of becoming victims of potential harm or injury at the hands of caregivers or other residents. Any time abuse, neglect, or mistreatment takes place in a nursing home, families who trusted the care of their aging parents to these facilities feel justifiably angry because that trust was violated.

If your loved one was mistreated, injured, or died unexpectedly from neglect while living in an Aurora nursing home, let our Illinois nursing home injury law firm protect the rights of your family. Contact the Aurora nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers at Nursing Home Law Center LLC (800-926-7565) today to schedule a free case consultation to discuss filing a claim for compensation.

According to the National Center on Elder Abuse, older women tend to experience disproportionately more abuse and neglect than older men. Women often suffer significantly more psychological and physical damage from even a minor incident. Also, individuals at the highest risk for abuse tend to be socially isolated, disabled, or in need of a high level of assistance with routine activities of daily living.

The Aurora nursing home injury lawyers at Nursing Home Law Center LLC know that nursing home abuse is pervasive. The mostly hidden widespread problem exists in Illinois and the nation at large when vulnerable seniors become the victims of physical abuse, sexual assault, financial exploitation, mistreatment, or harm caused by negligence and mistreatment.

43 Percent of Aurora Nursing Homes Found to Provide Subpar Care

Located on the outskirts of the Chicago metropolitan area, Aurora is the second-largest city in Illinois, with over 200,000 residents. Approximately 17,000 (about eight percent) of the city’s residents are over the age of 65. The elderly population has risen significantly over the last decade as a result of demographic trends and the fact that people are living longer. However, the growing community of older Americans has placed a strain on the Aurora area residential nursing facilities that are responsible for providing 24-hour care to seniors, disabled, and rehabilitating.

Our Aurora nursing home negligence attorneys at Nursing Home Law Center have seen an increase in civil cases involving abuse, neglect, and mistreatment occurring in nursing facilities for the aged throughout Illinois.

The national Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) routinely inspects and publishes data on every nursing facility in the U.S. Currently, there are 74 nursing homes in and around Aurora, Illinois. Based on surveyor investigations, the agency rated 43 percent (32) of those facilities “below average” or “ much below average” in the overall quality of care provided to residents.

Of the nearly 200,000 residents living in Aurora, Illinois, approximately 10,000 (5%) are sixty years and older. The number of senior citizens within the city limits has grown significantly in the last few years as more of the “baby boomers” enter their retirement years. Some of the elderly live in nursing facilities managed by overworked nurses in overcrowded conditions where the strain on staffing leaves the residents without their needs are being met.

Comparing Aurora Area Nursing Homes

The Nursing Home Compare webpage at Medicare.gov explains the annual nursing home inspection process:

“Approximately once a year, state inspectors conduct full (standard) inspections of nursing homes for compliance with the federal Medicare and Medicaid regulations. Throughout a year, a nursing home may also be inspected based on a complaint submitted by a resident (or other individual) or based on a facility’s self-reported incident. When inspectors find noncompliance, the facility receives a citation. Nursing homes are then required to implement a plan to correct the noncompliance.”

★★★★★
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

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
