Reporting nursing home violations in Illinois: residents' rights during annual inspections

There are specific rights that residents, and their families, have during the annual inspection process by the Illinois Department of Public Health.

The Illinois Department on Aging has the following tips and information for how concerned residents and family members can report suspected nursing home violations to the proper authorities and information on their rights during these inspections:

  1. If you, or a family member, have concerns about how you are being treated by a nursing home, keep written notes. These notes can be shared with facility inspectors and can be used to identify problems and areas of concern within a facility;
  2. Residents, and their relatives, can request private meetings with inspectors. This can be a confidential and safe way to convey concerns to the inspectors;
  3. All facilities are required to display their annual inspection results and to make copies of the previous five years' reports available upon request; and
  4. You do not have to wait for the annual inspection to report nursing home abuse or neglect. If your loved one has been the victim of abuse or neglect in an Illinois nursing home or long-term care facility you can go to Illinois' website for reporting abuse here.

If you, or a loved one, have been the victim of abuse or neglect in an Illinois nursing home you may be entitled to bring a claim against that facility. The attorneys of Mark L. Karno & Associates have successfully represented victims of nursing home abuse and neglect. If you have any questions about this post, or any issues regarding possible nursing home abuse or neglect, contact Mark L. Karno & Associates by calling 312-701-0600 or by emailing Mark.Karno@Karnolaw.com.
