Alden of Old Town West – Bloomingdale, IL – 7/5/2006

Alden of Old Town West has been fined $11,000 for failure to ensure a resident was not subjected to psychological abuse and punishment by staff. The resident, who needs an electric wheelchair to get around, suffered scrapes and bruises after a staff person ordered the resident to crawl naked to the shower room. The staffer then showered the resident on the dirty floor.

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