Oak Park Healthcare Fails to Monitor Wandering Resident

Oak Park Healthcare Center
625 North Harlem, Oak Park
Fined- June 4, 2008
Oak Park Healthcare Center was fined $10,000 for failure to monitor a resident who was identified as a wanderer and had a history of falls.
In February of 2008, the resident managed to elope from the facility undetected. Conditions outside were cold and icy; the resident fell and was injured badly enough to require hospital emergency room admission.
