Was Your Loved One Injured in a Nursing Home?
There are numerous ways that someone may be injured in a nursing home, including:
- Decubitus ulcers (bedsores)
- Medication errors
- Inadequate monitoring
- Physical abuse by nursing home staff
If your loved one has experienced an injury in a nursing home, and it has raised suspicions, we recommend that you begin keeping a detailed log of the names of caregivers, dates when particular incidents occurred and any other relevant information. Keeping a log may help you begin to see patterns in the care that your loved one is receiving. You can also contact the Illinois Department of Public Health to see if any investigations have occurred or violations been cited. Even if your loved one has passed, we recommend discussing your concerns with our attorneys.
