A Chicago nursing home, South Shore Nursing and Rehabilitation Center was fined for failure provide adequate supervision to two residents. A resident, who had a history of wandering, left the facility unnoticed. She was found by paramedics and taken to a local hospital. Another resident, who was blind and not able to get around by himself, was dropped off at an appointment without an escort. The resident never saw the doctor because he remained in the lobby until the driver returned.
