Illinois nursing home residents are frequently exposed to bacterial infections or worse. Nursing homes are breeding grounds for infections. Sadly, most infections are entirely preventable with good care. Nursing homes are typically understaffed, and employees sometimes receive little to no real training on preventative precautions. Cross-contamination is a big problem too. Common infections include:

  • Sepsis
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Infected bedsores
  • MRSA
  • C-Diff
  • Pneumonia
  • Infected surgical sites and wounds
  • STDs (from sexual assault or from other residents)

For the past decade, attorney Jaye R. Lindsay has been a strong advocate for seniors throughout the state. He has written numerous articles and continuing education materials that continue to be used by other attorneys in pursuing elder abuse cases. He has recovered millions in compensation for injured seniors and their families.
