Advocates For Victims Of Nursing Home Negligence
Make no mistake — nursing home abuse and neglect are major problems in Illinois. As the Baby Boomer generation ages, assisted living facilities and nursing homes will become even more crowded and harder to regulate. The problem is that many places put profit above patient care.
Many nursing homes are really run by two shell corporations, with minimal commitment to residents’ well-being. Finding the culpable parties behind the facade they have thrown up is like peeling an onion — you have to keep looking until you locate them. We examine medical records, attending physicians’ notes and other sources of evidence. These are difficult cases to research, but Strong Law Offices has made nursing home abuse a special focus.

A Nursing Home Scandal Yet To Break
Nursing home abuse will soon become an even bigger issue, as more baby boomers need extended care. Huge new corporate nursing homes are being built right now to warehouse these individuals — with investments going to construction and advertising, not to proper supervision, staffing or patient care.
