Personal Injury and Nursing Home Abuse

We Give Your Elderly Loved Ones a Powerful Voice
At the The Rooth Law Firm, we understand the horror, outrage and desire for justice that nursing home abuse victims and their families feel.  That sense of injustice is the force that propels our nursing home abuse lawyers to aggressively represent our clients and fight for the financial compensation and quality care that they need and deserve.

For more than 28 years, attorney Robert Rooth has fought for the rights of Nursing Home Abuse victims, with a particular focus on elderly abuse victims in nursing homes, and short-term geriatric-psychiatric care units. Our team, which includes a nurse with experience in elder care, has helped abuse victims and their families secure the assistance and justice they seek.

Illinois Nursing Home Abuse Laws

Each state has different laws which are enforced. Nursing homes care about compliance because they know they cannot otherwise get Medicare or Medicaid payments. You and your loved one should care even more, however, as the nursing home laws and rules that the state and federal government created came about due to reports of shockingly poor care that long-term care facilities provided to their residents.

These regulations are in place to provide a foundation for quality care and dignity. So if nursing home administrators fail to meet the minimum standards laid out by law, they are consequently failing to provide the necessary quality of care your loved one deserves.

Enforced by the Illinois Department of Health, the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act protects and defends the rights of long-term care facilities residents. According to the INHCA, a long-term care facility is defined as a building, private home, institution or other building that provides sheltered, nursing or personal care for at least three people not related by marriage or blood to the owner of the facility. Long-term care facilities may be also be called “shelter care facilities”, “skilled nursing facilities” or “intermediate care facilities”.

The Illinois Bureau of Long-Term Care regulates nursing homes operating in Illinois and ensures they remain in compliance with all provisions declared in the Nursing Home Care Act. Additionally, the BLTC monitors nursing homes receiving Medicare or Medicaid abide by federal regulations governing payments received by residents eligible for either health insurance.
