Nursing Home Administrator Quits

Posted by wlpo on August 16, 2010

For the second time in less than a year, a new administrator needs to be hired at the La Salle County Nursing Home.

Dr. Amjad Hussein resigned from the position Friday after a closed session meeting of the La Salle County Nursing Home Committee.  He was hired in February to take over for previous administrator Adrienne Erickson who was fired after the county was sued for alleged sexual assaults at the nursing home.

La Salle County Board Chairman Jerry Hicks says he knew “thing’s just weren’t working out” with Hussain but declined further reasoning on the resignation.  He already has a potential replacement in mind.  Hicks says this person was interviewed for the job earlier this year before Hussain was hired.

Hicks expects the new administrator to be hired within a week or two.
