Today, lawmakers, the AARP, the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, the Illinois Citizens for Better Care, the Illinois Association of Long Term Care Ombudsmen and other senior and nursing home advocacy groups will hold a press conference to announce nursing home reform legislation that will be introduced in the Illinois Senate this week. The press conference will be held in Springfield at 1:00 p.m. CST.
As Chicago nursing home neglect attorneys who represent residents and their families, we are energized to see legislation aimed at improving safety and care for nursing home residents in Illinois. We commend the lawmakers and advocates who made this legislation possible. We will continue to post news updates surrounding the Illinois nursing home abuse and neglect reform legislation.
