Unfortunately, many nursing homes are inadequately staffed to address the medical and psychiatric needs of their residents. Shay & Associates represent elderly persons who have either been abused or neglected in nursing homes or their families following the death of a loved one who suffered abuse or neglect. If you suspect any abuse or neglect in a nursing home, it is important to contact the Illinois Department of Public Health and file a complaint requesting an investigation. Further, a demand for a transfer to a hospital emergency room will allow for immediate care and reporting of abuse or neglect by a medical professional at the hospital, if such abuse or neglect is suspected. Be vigilant with your elderly loved ones.
If you, or someone you know has been abused or neglected in a nursing home, we hope you will contact a competent attorney for representation.
