Second Sexual Abuse Nursing Home Lawsuit Filed Against LaSalle County Nursing Home

The second nursing home abuse lawsuit to arise from reported sexual abuse at the LaSalle County Nursing Home was filed in LaSalle County Circuit Court in Illinois. This nursing home lawsuit seeks at least $100,000 from the nursing home. The suit alleges that the nursing home allowed a sexually active male resident to have contact with a female resident between Jan. 17 and May 26. The Illinois Department of Public Health said that the male resident molested a number of female residents and was later moved to a psychiatric facility. Another sexual abuse lawsuit has already been filed against LaSalle County Nursing Home. State and federal authorities have fined the county $20,000 stating that the staff at the home did not take steps to prevent the molestations. The staff at a nursing home must be attentive in order to ensure that sexual abuse does not occur within the facility. To read more about the nursing home abuse, please click the link.
