LAWSUITS NEWS & LEGAL INFORMATION
Abuse and neglect was so extensive at a south side Maxwell Manor nursing home, two former employees dubbed it "the house of death, terror and filth." The accusations include sexual assaults, medication abuse, rat infestation and drug dealing. The nursing home settled for $1.9 million. Federal and Illinois state prosecutors joined the suit in 2000 and said the settlement was one of the largest ever in nursing home neglect. The two whistleblowers will share in $313,000 of the settlement; the federal government will get $1 million and the state about $610,000. (Nov-23-04) [SUN TIMES]
