Bedsores are a sign of neglect in nursing homes

Nursing home abuse can happen to anyone in a nursing home's care. It could be a relatively healthy person at the nursing home temporarily, or it could be an elder who requires 24-hour care. Regardless of who the case involves, it's never acceptable for a person to fall victim to nursing home abuse. Nursing homes should have standards in place to prevent abuse or neglect, and if they don't, they should be held accountable for any injuries that take place.

Nursing home abuse? Report it immediately

Neglect and abuse have no place in nursing homes, yet many people struggle with the abuse they face in these very facilities. Nursing home abuse can range from forgetting to give a patient medications or overmedicating patients to ignoring patients when they call for help or are hurt.

Tourist traffic can lead to dangerous traffic jams

Tourism is a part of life in Chicago, so it's not a surprise when the roads are backed up or when collisions take place with those who aren't familiar with the city. Normally, you'd take public transportation or walk to where you want to go, but having to go across town, you opted to drive. That choice led to a crash on the way, as a tourist trying to get around stopped traffic used the shoulder to try to pass. Unfortunately, you were turning, and they T-boned you.

What can you do to prevent a loved one from wandering?

Wandering can be a significant problem for some elderly people with memory loss issues and other cognitive disorders. Some may become confused about where they are or where they're going, potentially resulting in walking away from a nursing home and getting lost.

Avoid crashes in amusement park traffic with these tips

Summer is a fun time of year, especially for those who love amusement parks in Illinois. Getting to the park can be just as dangerous as some of the most wicked rides, though. With many vehicles present, backed-up traffic can be difficult to handle as you approach the park. In the parking lot, those in a rush put pedestrians in danger, too.

Get help with your claim after an injury

There is nothing scarier than being involved in a serious crash. It takes you by surprise and changes all your plans. You might have been thinking of going to work or have been in the middle of planning a vacation only to now have to adjust those plans to go to medical appointments, to enroll in therapy or because of a disability.

Families can fight back when loved ones are abused

Nursing home abuse is devastating to patients and those who find out that their loved ones have been abused. Victims of nursing home abuse may go through many months or years of pain and suffering before the truth comes out, and the shock that the family goes through is difficult, to say the least.
