It’s hardly a surprise that nursing home residents often require frequent, significant medical care. Nursing homes agree to provide their residents with adequate care when they establish a facility. However, Illinois medical malpractice attorney Harvey Walner has seen too many of these facilities fail to live up to the medical requirements of their residents.

Medical malpractice is one of the most common forms of nursing home abuse and neglect. Because providing such care is often expensive, nursing home facilities frequently attempt to cut corners in this area, putting residents in danger.

Medical malpractice in nursing homes can take many forms, including:

  • Staff members with insufficient medical training
  • A lack of available doctors or trained nurses
  • Medication errors
  • Failure to notice developing medical problems
  • Unwillingness to call in outside medical professionals when needed

Nursing homes are expected to meet the medical needs of their residents. And they are also expected to promptly contact a hospital if a resident’s medical needs exceed the facility’s capacity to provide care.

Your family member can suffer significant pain, long-term injuries and even death when an Illinois nursing home engages in medical malpractice. Our attorney knows that’s wrong, and he’s prepared to fight for you and your family.
