#232 The Chicago Nursing Home Report

Illinois ranks near the bottom for nursing home care. Low staffing levels, failed inspections and using strong medications to subdue residents unnecessarily have contributed to a consistent low ranking, despite reforms enacted in 2010.

Joel Inwood has led a Chi Hack Night breakout group since 2015 to create an interactive map showing the quality of nursing homes in the Chicago region, and tonight they launch it!

Afterward, Jason Molony of the South Side Healthy Aging Resource Experts (SHARE) Network will talk about:

  • Older adult health on the South Side

  • SHARE Network strategy to disseminate geriatric health information

  • Creating change in a South Side nursing home
