New bill makes it easier to obtain nursing home records

Governor Quinn has signed a bill that will make it easier for families to obtain records of deceased loved ones, including nursing home records.

In the past, the family usually had to open an estate in order to obtain these records. This was costly and time consuming.

S.B. 1694 allows you or your attorney to more quickly and easily obtain the necessary records.  This, in turn, will allow the attorney and you to determine what your rights and options are more quickly than before.
