Ballard Nursing Center Fails to Maintain Door Alarm

9300 Ballard Road in Des Plaines
FINED- July 29, 2004
Ballard Nursing Center was fined $5,000 for failing
to supervise a resident who left the facility through
a back exit door that had a disabled alarm. The door
locked behind the resident and she was unable to get
back into the facility until an employee heard her
knocking. While outside, the resident sustained two
bumps on her head and a cut elbow. The facility was
unaware the door alarm was disabled.
