Raintree Terrace, Carbondale, IL – 4/22/05

Fined for failure to investigate an allegation of physical abuse of a resident by an employee and for allowing the employee to continue working after becoming aware of the allegation. A resident alleged that an employee drug her by the arm down the hall, blew smoke in her face and said inappropriate things. A workshop staff member notified the facility of the resident’s allegations after taking pictures of the abrasions and bruises on the resident’s back and was told the allegations were “absolutely absurd.”
