The nursing home industry in Illinois is regulated by several state and federal agencies. The Illinois Department of Public Health and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services are the two main agencies with oversight over nursing homes. To protect the safety, health and well-being of nursing home residents, these agencies have published extensive laws and regulations controlling licensing, nutrition, cleanliness, proper staffing, training, proper care of residents and other important issues. Even with these extensive regulations, nursing home residents continue to suffer illness and injuries as a result of negligence and abuse.
