ILLINOIS RIPS NURSING HOME
Why can’t Virginia get tough with bad nursing homes around our Commonwealth?
It doesn’t appear the State of Illinois has any problem getting after them!
Peoria Gardens Healthcare Center, a troubled nursing home located in East Peoria, and state health officials are gearing for battle after authorities fined the home $100,000 — one of the largest such fines ever — for neglect and faulty care of mentally ill and elderly patients. In a report obtained by the Chicago Tribune, state health officials detailed violations at the nursing home that are unusual in scope and severity, according to state officials and watchdog groups.
A fine of $100,000 might just get the attention of the “fat cat” owners!
