Nursing Home Abuse: Protecting Loved Ones In Illinois Nursing Homes

A very troubling case of nursing home abuse occurred at Rosewood Care Center in March of 2014 when two nursing aides were caught physically abusing a 97-year-old resident of Rosewood Care Center in St. Charles, Illinois. One aide slapped the resident with a nylon strap while the other nursing aide recorded the terrible incident. The resident was heard crying "Don't! Don't!" as the nursing aides could be heard laughing in the background.

Loved One Injured In A Nursing Home? Now What?

When a loved one is injured in a nursing home, determining what steps to take can be confusing. One option you have is to call an attorney that is experienced in handling nursing home claims to get advice. Additionally, in Illinois, the state, by and through the Illinois Department of Public Health, conducts investigations into injuries of nursing home residents resulting from abuse or neglect. This service is separate and apart from hiring an attorney. To have the Illinois Department of Public Health investigate potential signs of abuse or neglect, you can call the Illinois Department of Public Health Nursing Home Hotline and report the situation to (800) 252-4343.
