A loved one has been inappropriately treated at a nursing home, what are their rights?

Nursing home neglect is a tragic and all too common occurrence. Loved ones go into nursing homes for comfort, protection, and assistance during the later stages of their lives. All too often what results is an overburdened staff that is inattentive and unresponsive to residents' needs.

Signs of nursing home negligence range from unexplained injuries, to pressure sore development, inadequate hydration and/or nutrition, and overall mental deterioration. The effects of these injuries oftentimes cause significant impairment of qualify of life for people that can least afford it. At times, wrongful death may even result.

Victims of nursing home neglect do have options within the civil justice system. Both state and federal law mandates that care for nursing home residents meets specific quality criteria and be free from neglect. In Illinois, the Civil Justice System allow nursing home residents and/or their families to file lawsuits if these criteria are not met.

It is vital that individuals who are victims of nursing home neglect contact a personal injury attorney for assistance in handling their claim. At Ryan, Ryan & Landa, we know what records, annual assessments, and incident reports must be obtained in order to prove nursing home neglect. Contact us today for a free case consultation.
