In the state of Illinois nursing home residents are protected under the law from nursing home abuse and neglect to ensure their safety and well being. Residents are protected under both state and federal laws and if their rights are violated the nursing home can be liable both civilly and criminally.
In Illinois, government agencies are responsible for investigating, taking in complaints, and ensuring the safety of nursing home residents. The Illinois Nursing Home Care Act (210 ILCS 45) protects nursing home residents and their right to complain, right to a doctor of their own choosing, access to their own medical records, and a number of other rights to their bodies and decisions. The Illinois Nursing Home Care Act also means that should a nursing home violate any of the legally protected rights of its residents then said residents can take legal action. This is when the help of a nursing home abuse attorney Chicago is needed.
