Hampton Plaza Nursing Home Update: Nursing Home Fire in Niles, IL

The Hampton Plaza nursing home fire in Niles, IL that killed two nursing home residents and injured others continues to raise questions about for-profit nursing home facilities. The Hampton Plaza nursing home is a for-profit facility that contains 152 beds according to the Illinois Department of Public Health. The home provides a variety of nursing home services and other medical services. Hampton Plaza does accept Medicare and Medicaid residents. Often, for-profit nursing home facilities lag behind their nonprofit and public competitors in safety, quality of care, and have increased incidents of nursing home abuse and neglect.
