42 Illinois Nursing Homes Cited In 4th Quarter of 2009 For Violations Related To Patient Care

Picture-220I feel strongly about publicizing information related to poorly performing facilities.  In Illinois, we are fortunate to have a department of health that does a great job documenting nursing home violations and publishing them on a quarterly basis.  My hope is that families can use this information when making decisions relating to the placement of a loved in a nursing home.

Below are the actual facilities cited by the IDPH this quarter— I do think the individual violators are important– but I think the better understanding of the real state of nursing homes in Illinois can be visualized by looking at the violators in their entirety.

Nonetheless, if you have a loved one at one of these facilities, you should at least be aware of the facilities prior violations.  Further, looking at prior quarterly violations can help in making a determination if the facility merely had an isolated problem or truly has ongoing patient safety problems.
