Illinois Nursing Home Association Chief Fired Over Missing $670K

There are reports that Dennis Bozzi, the former President and CEO of Life Services Network of Illinois, has "misappropriated" approximately $670,000 from a nursing home group and has agreed to repay the funds. While this instance doesn't directly deal with Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect, I thought it was worth reporting because it illustrates an important truth. That truth is that no matter what a person's role they are not above the law nor should they be able to escape accountability. Illinois residents are fortunate that they have laws in the Illinois Nursing Home Care act that allows them to bring a civil claim for any harm that comes to them or a family member because of abuse or neglect of a nursing home resident. If you have any questions regarding this post or an issue involving Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect, please contact Illinois Nursing Home Attorney Mike Keating at 312-208-7702 or All initial consultations are confidential and free.
