Illinois authorities investigating nursing home mistreatment
In response to a complaint that a woman’s mother was experiencing abuse within an Illinois nursing home, Alton Police and the Illinois Department of Public Health are conducting an investigation into the facility, the Telegraph reported on December 23.
According to reports, Carol Frederick’s 93-year-old mother suffered injuries inflicted by two Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA). Frederick, 72, also claimed that her mother suffered from bedsores after facility staff left her laying in feces and urine. Frederick alerted authorities after relocating her mother to a rehabilitation center. The nursing home’s name reportedly was not released due to the ongoing investigation and the CNAs involved in the complaint were relieved from their posts.
