More About North Chicago, Illinois

North Chicago is ground zero for some of the most prestigious medical institutions in the United States, including the Chicago Medical School and the Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine. The quality of its nursing homes, and the nursing homes of surrounding Lake County, however, is less clear. Unfortunately, about 30 percent of U.S. nursing homes have been cited for serious nursing home abuse at some point.

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

Below is a partial list of the kinds of personal injury claims we handle.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1) What kind of behavior typically triggers a nursing home abuse claim?

The most common grounds for nursing home abuse claims are:

  • Breach of the patient care contract
  • Negligent supervision leading to injury
  • Negligent nursing care (evidenced by bedsores, for example)
  • Negligent hiring of staff
  • Improper maintenance of facilities
  • Assaults by staff members

2) Which administrative agency is responsible for enforcing nursing home regulations?

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), a state agency, is charged with this duty. The IDPH:

  • approves nursing home license applications,
  • conducts yearly nursing home inspections,
  • conducts unscheduled, random inspections, and
  • helps nursing homes apply for Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement programs.

3) Is a nursing home liable if a resident is injured in a slip and fall accident?

Yes, if the accident can be traced to misconduct by a nursing home employee. Misconduct can include both an action and/or a failure to act (failure to clean up a spill or properly maintain a wheelchair, for example).

4) Can I sue the nursing home itself for negligence by its staff?

Yes. Under Illinois law, employers are responsible for the consequences of the on-duty wrongful behavior of their employees. Although you will also have a claim against the staff member, employees typically lack the financial resources to pay significant compensation.

5) My father was sexually abused by another resident. Do I have a claim against the nursing home?

You will have a claim if the incident can be traced to staff negligence (which is likely under most circumstances). You might claim that the nursing home was understaffed, for example, or that the facility failed to provide adequate security.
