Local nursing homes faced number of violations in 2016, per IDPH report

Posted: Updated:

ILLINOIS – According to a report from the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), officials recorded numerous violations from Illinois nursing homes that resulted in serious injuries to residents.

The Nursing Home Act recorded a series of type “AA” and “A” violations during the third quarter of 2016.

An “AA” violation is cited when there is a condition or occurrence at the facility that caused a resident’s death, while an “A” violation pertains to a condition in which there is a substantial probability that death or serious mental or physical will result or has resulted.

Three Central Illinois nursing homes were included in the report: The Mosaic of Springfield, Manor Court of Clinton and Paris Health Care Center.

In July, Mosaic, a 251-bed skilled care facility, was cited with an “A” violation and fined $25,000 for failure to assess and monitor a change in a resident’s condition resulting in hospitalization. It also resulted in failure to assess fall risk and implement prevention measures. The facility later waived its right to a hearing and paid $16,250.

Then, in August, Manor Court, a 134-bed skilled care facility, saw an “A” violation for failure to safely transfer a resident, resulting in a head injury. The facility was fined $25,000 and is scheduled for a prehearing conference on October 19.

Paris Health Care Center, a 128-bed skilled care facility, also was cited for an “A” violation in August. The facility was fined $25,000 for failure to provide supervision for a resident who fell and suffered a fracture to the spine. That fine was paid in full.

The full report, including other nursing homes from around the state, can be found below.
