3250 South Plum Grove Road, Rolling Meadows, IL 60008
Fined- March 2, 2009
Meadows was fined $10,000 for failure to report and follow up on an incident of neglect. A resident who was found to have put a foreign object into his rectum was prescribed 24 hour surveillance. Within two days, the resident was left alone and proceeded to insert another foreign object into his rectum. The first time, the resident required surgery and a colostomy; the second time, the object was removed at the hospital without surgery.
