Our Chicago nursing home abuse attorneys know that the decision to put a loved one in a nursing home or care facility is not easy. It is even more difficult when you read a story like the one in yesterday’s Chicago Tribune:

“Glenview police are investigating the death of an 86-year-old woman who was apparently assaulted last week in a nursing home. Mercedes Iverson, who lived at the Maryhaven Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Glenview was pronounced dead Thursday. On Friday, the Cook County medical examiner’s office ruled the death a homicide, saying she suffered brain injuries related to an assault.”

It appears that it was initially believed that Iverson had suffered from a fall at the nursing home, but the medical examiner’s office says that an autopsy revealed assault injuries.

Chicago nursing home abuse attorneys work to help families recover damages for pain, suffering and medical expenses due to nursing home abuse or neglect. We also hope to help families spot signs of abuse or neglect by providing the following “warning signs” of nursing home abuse or neglect. Ask yourself the following questions:


  • Has your loved one become quiet, reserved, depressed or even fearful since moving into a care facility?
  • Do you have concerns about your loved one’s personal or room hygiene? Do they appear to be bathed and in clean clothes and bed linens on a regular basis?
  • Do the staff appear perturbed if you stop by unannounced or at unexpected times for a visit?
  • Has your family member sustained injuries more frequently since moving to a nursing home?

If the answer to any of the above questions is “yes,” you should contact a Chicago nursing home abuse lawyer right away. They will work with you to get the help you and your loved one may need to protect them and stop nursing home abuse in Chicago.

When you make the difficult decision to move your family member into a nursing or long term care facility, you deserve the peace of mind of knowing they are safe and well cared for. In the event that you see warning signs that this is not the case, you need to act quickly to avoid Chicago nursing home abuse, neglect or even death. Do not wait until it is too late, as it clearly was in this tragic case.
