What are the rights of residents of nursing homes?

Illinois law offers residents of nursing homes certain rights which are guaranteed by law and protect those residents from unreasonable personal, civil and religious restraints.

The Nursing Home Care Act protects residents against abuse, neglect and mistreatment, and requires nursing homes and assisted living facilities to provide a clean and safe environment for residents. Unfortunately, many nursing care facilities fall far short of the law, and elder abuse and neglect is commonplace in many facilities across Chicago.

The Illinois Nursing Home Care Act, defines the residents’ rights, including, but not limited to, the right to:

  • Be free from abuse or neglect
  • Manage their own finances
  • Have their own clothing and belongings
  • Be free from restraints unless ordered by a physician
  • Have access to their medical records
  • Have visitors, mail and phones

In addition to this act, Chicago nursing homes are also subject to federal laws protecting their residents. Despite these legal protections, abuse still occurs and can result in serious injuries or death.
