Poor Nursing Care at Glenshire Nursing and Rehab Results in Cardiac Arrest

Richton Park

Glenshire Nursing and Rehab Centre
22660 South Cicero Avenue, Richton Park
Fined- August 6, 2008
Glenshire Nursing and Rehab Centre was fined $20,000 for failure to provide a resident with appropriate nursing care.
Based on closed record review and staff interview, investigators determined that the facility failed to provide the necessary care and medical services that resulted in a resident’s blood pressure going high without medical attention for five hours. The failure to seek timely medical intervention for this potentially critical condition placed the resident at serious risk. He suffered a full cardiac arrest and died five days later after being removed from life support.
