IL Regulators Move to Revoke Columbus Manor's Nursing Home License

CBS Chicago (via the AP) is reporting that the State of Illinois is in the process of revoking the nursing home license of the Columbus Manor Residential Care Home in downtown Chicago. It is reported that Columbus Manor has received several violations involving its residents' safety including attacks among residents and an attempted sexual assault. A hearing set for December 6th on the matter.

As explained on this blog, a nursing home is responsible for the health and safety of its residents. Keeping a resident healthy and safe includes keeping them from harm of other residents. This responsibility is a legal duty and when the nursing home breaches that duty it is responsible for the injuries or harm to the resident.
