Chicago Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys

Chicago nursing home abuse attorneys at the Illinois Hammer Injury Law Firm are here and ready to help. As our loved ones get older, the decision to place them in a nursing home can be a difficult but necessary one. This is a decision made with the hope that your family member will receive the best possible care at a reputable nursing home. Unfortunately, Chicago nursing home abuse cases occur regularly. Many facilities care more about earning a profit than they do about taking care of our aging loved ones. That’s why Chicago nursing home abuse attorneys are necessary.

 

According to Adult Protective Services, nursing home abuse is on the rise.

This abuse comes in many forms, including:

  •      Neglect
  •      Physical or verbal abuse
  •      Emotional and psychological abuse
  •      Financial abuse (such as theft)

Some signs to identify nursing home abuse include:

  •      Bed sores
  •      Missing medications
  •      Unexplained bruising and scabs
  •      Falls
  •      Extreme weight loss
  •      Extreme emotional changes such as agitation or behaving distantly

As the resident of a nursing home, a person has rights including:

  •      Freedom of choice regarding care, visitation rights, scheduling, and activities
  •      Respectful treatment 
  •      Access to proper physical and mental healthcare
  •      Access to paperwork necessary to transfer homes
  •      Protected communications about physical and mental needs
  •      Full information on all fees charged while staying at the nursing home
  •      Full access to all records pertaining to the resident’s care
