        Nursing Home Liability Insurance

        It’s virtually unthinkable that the state of Illinois would license any type of nursing home, long-term care or assisted living facility without requiring basic nursing home liability insurance. Yet, that’s exactly what occurs today.

In a great many cases, these are the conditions paid for in full by your tax dollars. It is a climate of terror in which institutional administrators and corporate leaders of long-term care facilities (nursing homes) profit enormously, while ignoring federal and state law without shame or fear of prosecution.
