Lawsuit Filed Against County Nursing Home

Posted by wlpo on October 29, 2009

The son of a La Salle County Nursing Home resident has filed a lawsuit against the home dealing with alleged molestations by a man living at the home in Ottawa. 

Henry Elzer filed the lawsuit Monday claiming his mom suffered a fractured pelvic bone from a run-in with the alleged sexual abuser.  The suit blames nursing home employees for allowing the incident to happen.  The lawsuit also claims nursing home officials either dropped Elzer’s mom or caused her to fall a few years ago, leaving her with an ankle injury.

The county nursing home already faces state and federal fines dealing with reports of sex abuse carried out by a male resident against women at the nursing home.  The administration at the nursing home has been replaced.
