Heartland Health Care of Canton was fined $10,000 for failure to prevent the ongoing mental abuse of a resident by a facility staff member. The facility failed to follow their Abuse Prohibition Policy by not reporting multiple incidents of abuse witnessed by several other staff members, thus subjecting the resident to continued abuse for a period of five months.

The Illinois Department of Health produces quarterly reports on nursing home violators.
