FRANKLIN GROVE — An Illinois nursing home is contesting a $50,000 fine for a mechanical lift failure and other violations that state investigators say contributed to a resident’s death.
The (Dixon) Telegraph reports the Illinois Department of Public Health cited Franklin Grove Living and Rehabilitation Center for the lift problem as well as a violation of the state Nursing Home Care Act.
The center is cooperating with the state, but Administrator Jessica Rogers says the nursing home doesn’t agree with the findings.
