A resident stabbed another resident at Glenshire Nursing Centre. The Illinois nursing home was fined for failure to adequately supervise a resident, which resulted in him stabbing another resident after an argument. The facility also did not ensure that the safety of other residents in the facility was protected by allowing the resident to return to the facility after the assault for 17 days without a care plan and interventions in place to address his physical aggression and alcohol abuse.
