SPRINGFIELD, IL Clearbrook Center has been fined $40,000 (Statement of Violation) by the Illinois Department of Public Health for failure to provide proper nursing care, to supervise its residents, to investigate resident injuries of an unknown origin and to ensure residents' privacy. The 92-bed intermediate care facility for the developmentally disabled is located at 3201 W. Campbell St. in Rolling Meadows.
During a special licensure survey, Department investigators found numerous instances in which the welfare of residents was jeopardized by staff who did not provide the proper care.
The following incidents were cited as part of the disciplinary action:
A review of facility records also determined staff did not conduct fire drills/disaster evacuation drills as required.
A Department-ordered plan of correction required the facility to provide nursing services in accordance with the needs of the residents; to ensure that enough staff is available to take care of residents and they have the training or experience in tasks assigned to them; and to instruct staff on proper procedure during or after an accident or injury.
Clearbrook Center has requested a hearing on the Department's action. No hearing date has been set.
