An elderly man was beaten to death in a Chicago nursing home with a history of nursing home abuse and neglect. The man had only been at All Faith Pavilion, formerly William L. Dawson Nursing Home, for four or five days before the incident. The nursing home has been forced to pay at least $80,000 in fines since 2004 for violations with a “substantial probability that death or serious mental or physical harm [would] result” due to the nursing home’s neglect. The nursing home has been cited for at least two deaths linked to neglect.
