Thirty Percent of Springfield, Illinois Nursing Homes Provide Inferior Care

Springfield is the Illinois state capital and home to more than 116,000 residents, nearly 19,000 of whom are senior citizens over 65. This number is likely much higher when factoring in the number of elderlies that reside in Decatur and other surrounding cities and towns.

The federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regularly inspects and publishes data on every certified nursing facility in the U.S. for compliance with federal regulations governing health and safety, including ten nursing homes located within a 25-mile radius of Springfield’s city center. Based on its investigations, the agency identified three of those facilities as deficient in the standard of care they provide residents.

Ranked Springfield Nursing Homes

Five (50%) of the nursing facilities listed below, in or around Springfield, were ranked below average by CMS in the quality of care they provide to residents.

What to Do if You Suspect Abuse or Neglect at a Springfield Nursing Home

Even if you just suspect that your loved one might be the victim of nursing home neglect or abuse, you should act. Notify the nursing home’s administrator and/or director of nursing, file a report with the Illinois Department of Public Health, and seek the counsel of a legal representative. Elderly victims are often afraid to come forward out of shame or embarrassment, which means you must rely on other signs to determine whether your family member is being mistreated, which are sometimes subtle. The most common red flags include unexplained bruises or other marks, sudden changes in behavior or personality, depression, unexplained weight loss, poor hygiene, and unclean clothing or surroundings.

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
