This Chicago Nursing Home Abuse Help website is published by the Elman Law Group, LLC, a personal injury law firm that is located in Chicago, Illinois. This site focuses on legal issues regarding cases of Illinois nursing home abuse and neglect, as well as injury and/or other harm caused by nursing home accidents. These issues are also potentially present in other similar types of health care settings including assisted living facilities, retirement homes, hospices, and skilled nursing facilities (SNFs).
Residents and patients in these health care facilities have legal rights, and there are a variety of laws, regulations, and standards that in aggregate dictate expectations regarding the level and quality of care that is to be provided. Unfortunately, in many cases – as seen in reports, studies, lawsuits and media sources – the level of care received does not always meet acceptable standards, and can be considered nursing home neglect. As well, there are various instances constituting nursing home abuse. Of course, avoidable nursing home accidents and other deficiencies in the procedures followed by nursing homes can and do also cause harm and injury to nursing home residents.
