Fines issues for Illinois nursing home neglect and death

Nursing homes in Illinois are supposed to care for the residents as required, provide them with a safe place to live and help them to do that which they are no longer able to do on their own. While most facilities can be trusted to do as they are expected in a caring and professional manner, there are times when even well-regarded facilities will make mistakes. Then there are those facilities that are dangerous and have a history of neglect, abuse and medical errors that lead to injury and nursing home death. When there is a belief that this is happening or has caused death, the families of the residents must understand that they have the right to pursue legal compensation.
