First, you should contact the management or risk management department of the nursing home or assisted living facility so they may immediately suspend the employee and start an investigation. Next, you should make a formal complaint with the management of the facility as well as the state and federal agencies overseeing the facility. By telling management, you have brought the facility into the spotlight and have created additional responsibilities on their behalf. Their failure to act after being put on notice can be a crucial element of any later claims or allegations.

Regardless of the response you get from the facilities management, if you feel certain about the abuse or the wrongful conduct, you should immediately notify the state and federal agencies overseeing the facility. And you should also immediately contact The Illinois Department of Public Health. The State of Illinois has tasked the Illinois Department of Public Health as the regulatory agency that grants these facilities their operating licenses and oversees the operation of nursing homes and long-term care facilities. The agency should take the information you provide and institute an independent investigation of the facility and alleged abuse. The Illinois Department of Public Health has numerous and expansive powers to administratively sanction a nursing home and in extreme situations, they might revoke the nursing home’s license.

If you believe the abuse is physical, you should immediately notify local law enforcement, as well as any of the state and federal agencies and parties listed above, that the abuse has occurred. As hard or uncomfortable as this might be, it is important to speak up. It also helps to have an experienced lawyer on your side when fighting a case like this.

Residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities have the same protection under Illinois law as any other resident in the state, and law enforcement should be involved in any allegation of physical injury for the safety of the injured party as well as any potential future victims.
