Nursing staff abuses resident at Illinois nursing home

A staff member at Maple Ridge Care Centre, an Illinois nursing home struck a resident and gave the resident a black eye. Seven employees were aware of the incident but did not report it in an effort to cover it up. A false incident report was filed stating that the resident fell and hit her face. The responsible staff member later confessed to the incident.

The Illinois Department of Health produces quarterly reports on nursing home violators. To access the website: http://www.idph.state.il.us/about/nursing_home_violations/quarterlyreports.htm
