Harmful care a pattern at Chicago care facility

A Chicago Tribune investigation uncovered a pattern of harmful care at Alden Village North, a Chicago home for children and adults with developmental disabilities. Thirteen times in the last decade, residents have died under circumstances that led to state citations for neglect or failure to investigate. Instead of cracking down, regulators have allowed the problems to worsen. Two days after the second day of the series was published Gov. Pat Quinn ordered a health monitor be placed at the troubled Chicago facility and instructed his staff to draft legislation to address the problems.
