Maplewood Care Fined for Failing to Supervise Resident

MAPLEWOOD CARE
50 N. Jane in Elgin
FINED- August 19, 2003
Maplewood Care was fined $10,000 for failure to
provide adequate supervision to a resident who was
admitted to the facility for supervision. The
resident, who had a cigarette addiction, had offered
sexual favors to other residents in exchange for
cigarettes and was caught performing oral sex on a
resident. The woman also was physically aggressive
with other residents and often took cigarettes out of
their hands or slapped them on their arms while
demanding their cigarettes. These aggressive acts led
other residents to physically injure the woman.
Despite being aware of the resident's actions, the
facility failed to address these behaviors for several
months.
