Alden Wentworth Fined for Nursing Home Violation

ALDEN WENTWORTH REHAB AND HEALTH CARE CENTER
201 W. 69th St. in Chicago
FINED- 2006
Alden Wentworth was fined $10,000 for failing to
provide the necessary supervision and assistance to
prevent accidents. A resident, who was blind and
considered a high risk for falls, broke his neck and
several vertebrae after getting up from a chair and
falling. He died two weeks later.
Despite a care plan that stated the resident was to be
continually supervised, the man was left alone.
