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!
