Institutional Malpractice

Nursing homes and long-term care facilities are considered healthcare providers. Under the Illinois Medical Malpractice Act, all healthcare providers are required to treat residents and patients with the same level of care that a reasonable healthcare provider would give in the same circumstances. Any nursing home or individual employee (such as a nurse, aide, or therapist) who fails to provide adequate medical care to a nursing home resident may be liable for medical or professional malpractice. You may have a claim if your loved one has been subjected to substandard medical care by an Illinois nursing home or other long-term care facility.
