Davis House Cited for Failure to Respond to Sexual Abuse

Davis House
4237 South Indiana Avenue, Chicago
Fined- May 22, 2008
Davis House was fined $25,000 for failure to ensure implementation of their policy prohibiting sexual abuse.
Surveyors determined that several incidents of sexual abuse took place at the facility. In February of 2008, a staff member coerced a resident to have sex with him several times. The incident was not fully investigated by the facility once the incident came to light. Subsequently, the same resident was sexually aggressive with another resident on a bus trip. The facility failed to notify the Illinois Department of Public Health and the administrator of the incident.
