Eldorado Care Center, an Illinois Nursing Home, despite knowledge of inappropriate sexual behavior by a resident, failed to implement measures to protect the other residents from sexual advances. Seven sexual advances were made towards other residents in a period of five months. The incidents were witnessed by nurses or CNA’s but were not reported to facility administration or the Department of Public Health as required by state law. The resident was often witnessed exposing himself to other residents and on at least one occasion was witnessed attempting to engage another resident in oral sex.
The Illinois Department of Health produces quarterly reports on nursing home violators. To access the website: http://www.idph.state.il.us/about/nursing_home_violations/quarterlyreports.htm
