Illinois Nursing Home residents at a Colfax facility were victims of inappropriate sexual contact by an employee of the facility. At least one incident was witnessed by a nurse who reported the incident to the DON. The DON, who was married to the perpetrator, failed to thoroughly investigate the incidents and the perpetrator was allowed to continue to work at the facility.
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
