Rest Haven of South Holland Fined for Failing to Supervise Patient at Risk for Falling

South Holland

Rest Haven South Nursing Home
16300 Wausau Street, South Holland
Fined- April 2, 2008
Rest Haven South Nursing Home was fined $20,000 for failure to provide supervision for residents identified as high risk for falls.
Two residents at the facility sustained falls that resulted in treatment for fractures. Both residents had been identified as high risk for falls (one of them already had a history of multiple falls). In one case, a staff member did not consult the resident’s chart before allowing her to walk; in the other case, facility staff did not adapt the resident’s care plan after each fall to prevent additional falls.
