Which Cook County Nursing Homes are Connected to Coronavirus Deaths

A total of 125 deaths reported by the Cook County Medical Examiner matched addresses of local nursing homes

Most all local and state officials are refusing to release the names of nursing homes where residents have fallen ill with coronavirus or died, citing privacy laws – this despite a growing push, both locally and nationwide, to provide families with that information.

However, NBC 5 Investigates obtained a list, compiled last weekend by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office, of deaths attributed to coronavirus. That list included an address for each person who died, so we cross-checked each one, and found a total of 125 fatalities whose addresses matched those of local nursing homes.

We do not know exactly where or when each of these people contracted the virus, nor where or when they passed away. And the below list does not include any nursing-home-related fatalities since last Saturday.

What we do know is that the last known address of each of these individuals matches a nursing home or long-term care facility in our area. 

NOTE: A previous version of this story included one coronavirus-related death listed by the Cook County Medical Examiner with an address that matched The Citadel of Wilmette. The Medical Examiner's records continue to list this death at that same address. However, the CEO of Citadel contacted NBC5 to say: "I can confirm 100% that [the individual listed on the M.E.'s records] was NEVER a resident at Citadel. I don’t know how the ME made this mistake, the only plausible explanation I can think of is that she may have been a resident there many many years ago prior to us owning the facility."  NBC5 Investigates has therefore deleted this entry, and is seeking further clarification from the Medical Examiner's office.
