Predators may view nursing home residents as easy prey

Because you love and respect your parents, you do everything in your power to provide for their safety and comfort as they age. Often, this includes finding them a safe and clean nursing home facility when their physical and mental needs exceed what can be provided in their own home. No matter how carefully you screen the facility, however, it's impossible to prevent all problems. Recent reports from major news outlets highlight how shockingly prevalent sexual abuse is in nursing homes.

Are you feeling unexplained pain after surgery?

Surgical procedures typically involve an element of pain. While some pain is expected, medical negligence during surgery can lead to additional, unexpected pain. It is reasonable to question whether your surgery was conducted properly if you are not getting the answers you deserve about post-surgical pain. If your doctor does not have a reasonable explanation for your pain, or if it persists longer than it should, you may be the victim of surgical malpractice.

Did your doctor's mistake result in a drug interaction?

Doctors prescribe medications in the hope of saving or improving lives. Tragically, medications can lead to serious medical issues or even death. In some cases, it is due to a doctor prescribing the wrong medication or a nurse administering the wrong dose. In others, it can be due to problems with labeling or with the way the drug was made or handled. Sometimes, insurance issue contribute to medication injuries. A pharmacist may substitute a different drug in a similar class or group in order to bill your insurance, causing a dangerous interaction. For some unfortunate people, their drug-related injury is the result of a mixture of medications that had a profoundly negative impact on their health.

Chicago bicycle accidents can be devastating for families

For bicycling enthusiasts, there is a wide range of benefits that come from their chosen form of transportation. Biking reduces reliance on fossil fuels. Bikers are engaging in aerobic exercise that helps keep their body and heart in better shape. They can sometimes commute more quickly and directly than those traveling in cars, public transportation or taxis. For many, biking is simply an enjoyable activity.

What do you do in cases of nursing home neglect?

There are many excellent elder care and nursing home facilities in Northern Chicago and the nearby suburbs. Unfortunately, sometimes even places with excellent reputations can fail to provide adequate care. In some cases, expansion and growth have left the nursing homes understaffed for their current number of residents. In others, a few aides with bad attitudes or mediocre work ethics can severely impact the level of care certain residents receive.
