Report Alleges Abuse at Nursing Home

Four teenage nursing assistants were found to have been verbally, sexually and emotionally abusing residents. The girls were supposedly abusing patients that have Alzheimer’s so bad that they wouldn’t be able to say it or remember what had happened. They girls would abuse the residents and then laugh when the residents became upset. The abuse was cited as spitting in mouths, poking breasts and nipples, putting fingers in mouths, touching and tapping genitals, sticking rear ends in faces, rubbing buttocks, rubbing penises, touching perinea, anal insertion, holding residents down, and teasing them. They girls were terminated when officials became aware of their conduct, and employees who were aware of the nursing home abuse and failed to report have also been terminated. This shocking story is an example of nursing home abuse and negligence that can happen anywhere, including Chicago. To read the full story, click here.
