Nursing Home Cited For Failing to Report Suspected Abuse

According to the Chicago Tribune, a nursing home was recently fined $7,000 by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for “its indifference to complaints of sexual abuse against elderly residents.” The nursing home neglected to investigate an incident in which a male staff member was suspected of nursing home abuse and the nursing home also failed to report the suspected abuse to the state. The article did not provide specific details surrounding the suspicions of nursing home abuse.
