Illinois Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect Alleged

There have been allegations made regarding Illinois nursing home abuse in Alton.

The allegations involve the treatment of a 93-year-old nursing home resident, and are discussed in The Alton Telegraph article of December 23, 2014 titled “Police investigate alleged elder abuse.”

As seen in the article, the nursing home resident allegedly suffered a variety of abuse and neglect, including bruising and intimidation by two certified nursing assistants at a currently-unnamed Illinois nursing home.

According to the article, the woman’s daughter, Carol Frederick, 72, of Godfrey, recently removed her mother from the nursing home.

Two excerpts from the article:

Once she relocated her mother, Frederick called Alton police, who photographed the older woman’s bruises on the back of her arms and twice interviewed the women. Frederick claims two certified nursing assistants at the nursing home inflicted the bruises while “roughing up” her mother as they dressed her after learning the family complained about them.


Frederick also has not yet filed a lawsuit, making it public record, which she said she intends to do.

Additional details and possible updates can be seen in a variety of media sources, including the Alton Telegraph article mentioned above.
