Are Nursing Homes Safe?

Nursing homes, assisted living centers, senior living centers, convalescent centers, skilled nursing facilities.  They go by any number of names, but are they safe?  A recent episode of the award winning PBS series Frontline takes a look at our country’s nursing homes and asks a lot of unnerving questions about how they are run and the risks being born by residents.

In Illinois the state legislature has enacted laws that allow victims and their attorneys to bring private actions in cases that concern abuse in a nursing home setting.  This was done to help relieve the volume that would have backlogged the Illinois Department of Public Health’s investigation units.

Vinkler Law has extensive experience investigating and prosecuting nursing home neglect and abuse cases.  Please contact Jerry Vinkler if you believe you or a loved one has been the victim in a nursing home.
