International Village Fined for Use of Dialysis Machines Without Adequate Training

International Village
4815 South Western Ave, Chicago
Fined- September 26, 2008
International Village was fined $25,000 for failing to ensure that appropriate care and services were provided by not competently assessing the access to the facility’s dialysis machine.
Staff and nurses who had not been fully trained on the facility’s dialysis machine were allowed to operate it, which led to an incident where a resident was found lying in a pool of blood from a disabled part of the dialysis machine. He was sent to the emergency room and admitted with a collapsed lung.
