Daystar Care Center
Daystar Care Center is a non-profit nursing home that provides long-term nursing home care in the state of Illinois. Nursing homes must abide by certain guidelines to make sure patients are healthy and safe.
Nursing Home Responsibilities
The 1987 Nursing Home Act was passed to protect nursing home patients from being neglected and mistreatment. If a patient feels that his rights are being violated, he should contact an Illinois nursing home negligence lawyer to handle his or her case.
The Nursing Home Act includes the following:
- The patient’s ability to freely communicate
- Freedom from physical restraints
- The ability to show self-determination and will
In order to see how your loved one’s nursing home is performing, check how the home is following these guidelines:
Make sure your loved one’s care does not fall through the cracks. There should be regular reviews and assessments to ensure the patient’s needs are being met.
Nursing homes have medical staff on site to care for patient’s needs. Medication errors can occur if the patient does not receive proper monitoring of his medical treatment plan. If you suspect your loved one may have been neglected in this way, contact an elder care attorney for help.
