Hickory Nursing Pavilion – Hickory Hills, IL – 3/31/05

Fined for failure to supervise and protect a resident after the resident’s roommate told staff that a male resident had entered their room twice and tried to sexually assault the woman. The incident was not reported or investigated, the physician was not notified and no steps were taken to protect the resident. Staff also did not update the male resident’s care plan to indicate new approaches and interventions to address his escalating behaviors.
