3 Ways to Research an Illinois Nursing Home’s Violations

Several public and private agencies are responsible for the licensing, regulating, inspecting, and certification of approximately 1,300 nursing homes in Illinois and responding to about 6,000 related complaints each year. These groups include IDPH and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Because both agencies are taxed with exhausting jobs and often express a lack of funds to support survey and improvement initiatives, it is crucial for family and friends to stay informed of the nursing home care their loved one is receiving. You can do this by asking questions of both the staff and residents, through surprise visits, joining a resident council, and by taking the time to review ratings, rankings, and nursing home violation lists available through federal and state entities, and right here on Levin & Perconti’s Nursing Home Abuse Blog.

  1. Find out the CMS quality rating of your loved one’s nursing home through Nursing Home Compare.
  2. Review a list of Illinois’ most recent nursing home violators (through the Illinois Department of Public Health or IDPH).
  3. Become familiar with the 22 of the most struggling facilitiesidentified by CMS to have the highest likelihood of putting residents at risk of abuse or neglect.

In Illinois, all skilled nursing facilities must adhere to the minimum standards of care established by the federal Nursing Home Reform Law. Those who do not comply should receive health violations leading to various penalties, including fines, or in some of the most severe cases, a group’s Medicare or Medicaid certification will be suspended or revoked by CMS. In some cases, a lawsuit is necessary to start an investigation, and can also help prevent dangerous abuse and harmful neglect from continuing.
