Golfview Developmental Center Fined for Failing to Prevent Bed Sores

GOLFVIEW DEVELOPMENTAL CENTER
9555 W. Golf Road in Des Plaines
FINED- 2003
Golfview was fined $10,000 for not ensuring residents
received nursing services to prevent them from getting
pressure sores or facilitate healing of the sores. In
one instance, the facility failed to discover a
resident's pressure sore until it had reached an
advanced stage. The facility also did not have
complete and consistent documentation of another
resident's pressure sores that had not improved.
