Chicago, IL Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Attorneys - Part 1

Champaign IL Nursing Home Ratings GraphWhen we make the difficult decision to place an aging family member in a Chicago nursing home, we expect that the medical staff is going to properly care for them and meet their needs. Tragically, neglect and outright abuse of residents have become all too common in nursing homes throughout Chicago and nationwide.

While state and federal regulations are in place to protect vulnerable elders, our Chicago, Illinois, nursing home injury attorneys atNursing Home Law Center LLC have seen a significant increase in cases involving abuse, neglect, and mistreatment of patients in nursing homes in the Chicagoland area and throughout Illinois .

With the aging of the population, more and more seniors will be entering Chicago area nursing homes over the next several decades. These facilities are often understaffed and/or staffed with untrained and low-paid workers. This will likely only increase the risk for abuse and neglect as nursing facilities struggle to keep up with the growing demand.

As much as we would like to think that the nursing home industry is motivated by caring for the aged, the chief driver for many of the large companies behind these facilities is money. When profit matters most, quality of patient care takes a backseat. Nursing home operators will hire less medically qualified staff and cut corners to save money.

If your loved one was injured or died as a result of negligence at a Chicago nursing home, contact the Chicago nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys at Nursing Home Law Center today for a free review of your case to discuss your legal options for compensation.

More Than One-Third of Chicago Nursing Homes Provide Substandard Care

Chicago is the third-largest city in the United States and the most populous city in Illinois. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 2.7 million people reside within the Chicago city limits, and almost ten million live in the greater metropolitan area. About 317,500 of city residents are over the age of sixty-five. The aging population has placed demands on facilities responsible for providing residential nursing care to the elderly in and around Chicago.

While Illinois endeavors to protect nursing home patients through the state Nursing Home Care Act and other laws, nursing home abuse and neglect are still pervasive problems in the state, reflecting national trends. The federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regularly inspects and publishes data on every nursing facility in the U.S. certified by CMS, including 191 nursing homes within a 25-mile radius of Chicago. Based on its investigations, the agency rated 77 (42%) of those facilities “below average” or “much below average” in the general quality of care provided to patients.

Rating Chicago Nursing Homes

State inspectors conduct annual surveys of CMS-certified nursing homes across the country for compliance with federal regulations governing safety, health, nutrition, and patients’ rights. Facilities that are found deficient receive a citation and are required to correct the noncompliance. Findings are published on the Medicare.gov “Nursing Home Compare” webpage.

Below we have broken down the rankings for all the facilities in the Chicago area, and highlighted the primary issues with some of the worst nursing homes.

Chicago, IL Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Attorneys - Part 2

Client Reviews
★★★★★
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
