Elgin, IL Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Attorneys

Elgin IL Nursing Home Ratings GraphMany families who have no other option than to entrust their aging parents to the staff in a nursing home hope that their elderly loved one receives the best care possible. Unfortunately, many nursing home operators place profits before the safety and needs of their residents. As a result, many residents in understaffed nursing homes become the victims of abuse, neglect, or mistreatment at the hands of their caregivers.

Our Elgin, Illinois nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers at Nursing Home Law Center LLC have seen a significant increase in cases of neglect and outright abuse of patients in nursing homes in Elgin and throughout Illinois.

With the aging of the population, more and more seniors will be entering Elgin 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 for beds.

If your loved one was injured or died unexpectedly as a result of negligence at an Elgin area nursing home, contact the Elgin 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.

Nearly One-Third of Elgin Area Nursing Homes Provide Substandard Care

Elgin IL Nursing Home Ratings GraphElgin is a mid-sized city west of Chicago that is considered part of the Chicagoland metro area. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 112,600 people reside within the Elgin city limits, and 12,500 of them, (more than 10 percent) are over the age of 65. The aging population has placed demands on facilities responsible for providing residential nursing care to the elderly in and around Elgin.

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 78 nursing homes within a 25-mile radius of Elgin’s city center. Based on its investigations, the agency rated 24 (30 percent) of those facilities “ below average” or “much below average” in the general quality of care provided to patients.

Lowest-Ranked Elgin 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.

The nursing facilities listed below, all in or around Elgin, Illinois, were ranked much below average by CMS in the quality of care they provide to residents. The deficiencies in care recorded by investigators reflect the same general issues currently affecting nursing homes nationwide and are usually tied to understaffing.

Overall Rating of 78 Nursing Homes

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
