East Moline Nursing Home Resident Allegedly Raped By Worker

A truly horrific report of elder abuse has surfaced from East Moline, IL where police have arrested a nursing home worker after he allegedly raped an 82-year-old resident at the facility where he worked. Paul Hubbard was arrested by East Moline Police after a co-worker saw him raping the nursing home resident.

Report of Elder Abuse Court records reveals that Hubbard was employed by Parkview Terrace Nursing Home and has sexual intercourse with an elderly resident who was unable to give consent.  The resident was taken to Illini Hospital for examination and has been released.

The Illinois Department of Public Health conducted an investigation into the incident and based on its preliminary findings, the nursing home did not violate any rules or regulations. The Department’s investigation continues to make sure the facility conducted a background check on all employees before hiring them.

Paul Hubbard’s record from Rock Island County contains only a parking ticket.  Hubbard’s first court hearing is Tuesday morning.

Client Reviews

  • Having worked in the medical field, I appreciated the way that Mr. Rosenfeld and his staff approached my family’s situation. The combination of medical knowledge and legal expertise was indeed the winning combination for our case.
  • While nothing can change the way our mother was treated at a nursing facility, I do feel a sense of vindication that the facility was forced to pay for their treatment. I am certain that they would never have done had my attorneys not held their feet to the fire.
  • I was very nervous about initiating a claim against my mother’s nursing facility, but Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers took care of everything from getting the medical records to going to court. I felt like I had real advocates on my side. That meant a lot to me.
  • After a horrific episode at a nursing home, my sister and I spoke to a number of law firms. No one took the time to answer our questions and explain the legal process like Mr. Rosenfeld. He did a tremendous job on our case and I can see why he’s earned the praise he has from clients and peers.
  • I liked the fact that I could call the office and ask questions about the legal process at anytime. I could tell that my case was in good hands. I think that this was reflected in my father’s settlement was more than I anticipated the case ever being worth.
