West Frankfort nursing home cited for serious violation

Posted: Updated:

FRANKLIN CO. -- The state of Illinois has cited a West Frankfort nursing home for a serious violation.

Inspectors with the Illinois Department of Public Health say after a patient had an adverse reaction after moving to a new room at Frankfort Healthcare and Rehab Center, workers there used injections of psychotropic medication on the patient.

A report from the state said that led to the patient's fall and a brain hemorrhage.

The state fined the nursing home $25,000. The business waived its right to a hearing and paid a little more than $16,000.
