Nursing Home Abuse

As the people we love age, we find comfort in knowing they’re in good hands at a trusted nursing home facility, but we’ve discovered that nursing home abuse is shockingly common. Unfortunately, nursing home companies sometimes care more about making profits than caring for our loved ones. According to a study conducted by the Nursing Home Abuse Center, seniors victimized by elder abuse have a 300% higher risk of death compared to seniors living in a nursing home absent of abuse. While there are federal and state laws intended to protect seniors from this abuse, not all nursing homes abide by these laws.

If you’ve been a victim of nursing home abuse or suspect your loved one may have been subjected to elder abuse, know that you are not powerless. With over $500 million recovered for our clients, you can trust our experience. Hiring The Illinois Hammer Injury Law Firm is the first step toward taking action. We will guide you through the process of investigating allegations. Proving negligence takes a skilled and experienced team.

Compensation can help victims and their families pay for medical care, cope with the improper care they received, and provide reparations for pain and suffering.

Common examples of nursing home abuse:

  • Neglect
  • Verbal or physical abuse
  • Emotional and psychological abuse
  • Financial abuse (such as stealing money or possessions)

Signs of nursing home abuse:

  • Unexplained bruises and scabs
  • Bedsores
  • Emotional inconsistencies such as agitation or behaving distantly
  • Falls
  • Extreme weight loss
  • Missing medications

What are nursing home residents’ rights?

  • Access to proper physical and mental healthcare
  • Respectful treatment
  • Freedom of choice regarding care as well as visitation rights, activities, and scheduling
  • Protected communications regarding physical and mental needs
  • Access to paperwork to transfer homes when necessary
  • Full information on all fees charged during care at a nursing home facility
  • Receiving full access to all records pertaining to your (the resident’s) care
