The Illinois Department of Health recently released information about a Chrisman nursing home that was cited for a type “A” violation of the Nursing Home Care Act. An “A” violation is the most serious licensure violation imposed by the state and pertains to a condition in which there is a substantial probability that death or serious mental or physical harm will result. The Chrisman facility has been fined $5,000 for its nursing home neglect. The facility failed to monitor a new resident who left the unit without the staff’s knowledge. The nursing home resident traveled one and a half blocks to the home of friends.
