Delay in Medical Treatment for Chicago Nursing Home Residents
A delay in medical treatment can be the difference between life and death. When a nursing home resident exhibits signs of a medical problem, nursing home staff such as RNs and CNAs have a duty to respond with urgency to the problem. Failure to do so can result in future medical problems and death.

Timely Medical Treatment Is Essential
The Nursing Home Care Act is clear about the actions that a CNA or other nursing home worker must take when a resident shows signs of medical distress. They must take timely and appropriate action to prevent further medical problems, injury or death. If they ignore the resident’s complaints, warning signs or symptoms, they or the facility can be held responsible for the loss.
