Friendship House of Centralia – Centralia, IL – 6/12/2006

Friendship House of Centralia was fined $5,000 for failure to provide adequate supervision for a resident who is cognitively impaired and moderately impaired for making daily decisions. The resident left the facility without staff knowledge, as evidenced by staff leaving the unit unattended, by allowing a 15-second delay of an alarm, and by failing to have the kitchen exit door alarmed or continuously supervised.

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