Abuse Leads to Wrongful Death in Nursing Homes

 

 

There are, unfortunately, many types of nursing home abuse that can result in wrongful death. Neglect is a very common cause of death in nursing homes, but often it is accompanied by abuse, both by staff and by residents.

 

Nursing home staff have a great deal of power over the residents. Sometimes, the staff will use this power abusively. They might constantly insult or degrade a resident, or they may physically or sexually abuse residents. They might withhold medication or restrain residents physically or with dangerous drugs.

 

     Helping a loved one move into a nursing home or long term care facility can be nerve racking for anyone. There are always concerns about the care your loved one is receiving and everyone has heard the horror stories of abuse and neglect for the elderly. However, you can have peace of mind knowing that your loved one’s safety and rights are protected under the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act.  The Act was established and enacted to provide nursing home residents and their families, with the assurance that they will receive proper care and will not be subject to nursing home abuse and neglect. When we think of nursing home neglect or abuse, we often think of physical injuries.
