What are the safer types of nursing homes?

The best choice for enjoying the golden years can be a difficult one for seniors and their relatives. Thousands of aging people in Illinois require a little assistance to get through their days, and nursing homes or other assisted-living facilities can help with more serious care. This is only true, however, if these facilities are well-run.

Is there a nursing home that is better than another?

It can often be difficult to confirm that a chosen nursing home is the best choice. Illinois and other states often maintain records of violations or inquiries into specific institutions. A good strategy often involves conversations with staff and other residents if possible.

Are some types of nursing home that deserves extra scrutiny?

A recent study by the University of Illinois at Chicago suggested that residents of for-profit nursing homes in the area are almost twice as likely to show symptoms of health problems related to poor care. This may be injury due to rough handling or negligent care, and it may also include neglect-related problems like bedsores and dehydration.

What are the less hazardous choices?

The study shows that nonprofit nursing homes and people living in their own or others' private homes fare better. The director of the study suggested more oversight for nursing homes and better screening of patients with compromised health.

How can a person respond to abuse or neglect in nursing homes?

A lawsuit regarding poor nursing home care may be the best way to stop poor care and help recompense victims after it has occurred. An attorney can help victims and their families review the evidence of poor care and plan accordingly.

View Article “I like to react to what the witness is saying—not only what they’re saying, but how they’re saying it,” Hopkins says.
