The Illinois Department of Public Health has finally released information about the growing numbers of COVID-19 cases and deaths at individual nursing homes in the state. As nursing home neglect and abuse attorneys, we have felt that families with loved ones in a nursing home deserve to know this important health information, and we had been dismayed by the secrecy and lack of transparency in Illinois up until now.
Below is a list of Illinois nursing homes with the worst outbreaks, as reported by the Chicago Tribune. It includes the nursing homes with the highest number of cases/deaths as of April 19. Unfortunately, we expect these numbers to rise in the coming weeks as nursing homes report more cases.

Sadly, this number is changing every day as the coronavirus crisis continues to rise to its peak in Illinois. If your loved one’s nursing home is not on this list, please read the entire list from the Chicago Tribune here. There are many more facilities with smaller numbers of confirmed cases of COVID-19. And some private nursing homes may not be included in this list.
We hope that that IDPH will continue to be transparent, giving families this vital health information about their loved one’s nursing home during this stressful time.
