The Suburban Cook Adult Fatality Review Team examines deaths associated with suspected abuse and or neglect of persons aged 18-59 with a disability and older adults 60+ years old residing in a domestic setting. This multi-disciplinary collaboration of professionals performs closed-session case reviews on a quarterly basis. All team activities are in accordance to Section 15 (b) of the Adult Protective Services Act [320 ILCS 20/15(b)].


The purpose of Fatality Review Teams is to (1) identify those responsible in serving victims of abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation, (2) improve the response of public services, and (3) enhance the coordination of systems in an effort to prevent similar outcomes in the future.


Formal recommendations and data are submitted to the Illinois Department on Aging.
