Search On For Nursing Home Director

Posted by wlpo on September 15, 2009

If everything goes right, a new director of the La Salle County Nursing Home could be picked in a month. That’s according to County Board Chairman Jerry Hicks.

After a meeting last week with Hicks, Adrienne Erickson was fired as nursing home director while Director of Nursing Lauretta Hammerich and Social Service Director Lanette Olszanowski resigned.
Dennis Reinmann from Pathway Health Services has been named the interim nursing home director. Sharon Goode also with Pathway is starting her job today in replacing Hammerich as director of nursing. Later this week, Joan Gehrke and Kathleen Mrochinski are expected to split duties as Social Services Director. They also work for Pathway Health Services.

The nursing home staff came under fire after the state and federal government fined the county once reports came out that as many as ten female patients were being sexually abused by one male patient at the nursing home. Nursing home staff was blamed for not taking action to stop the incidents.
