Description

Inspections find peril in central Illinois nursing homes highlighted the continued risk of injuries, infections and medication errors residents of area-wide nursing homes face despite state reform. CU-CitizenAccess.org found dozens of problems cited in state inspection reports, compounded by steep fines and lawsuits. Further, CU-CitizenAccess.org found federal rating systems of nursing home care often misleading. In one case, a 71-year-old man died following medication errors and neglectful care.
