Aperion Care nursing homes fined $366K+ for violations in 2019

Illinois nursing home chain Aperion Care was fined $366,800 in 2019 for failing to correct serious deficiencies in care and safety of its residents, according to The Quad-City Times.

The chain has 35 facilities in Illinois, according to the website of Levin and Perconti, a law firm that has represented defendants suing the chain.

One of the more significant penalties against Aperion Care by the Illinois Department of Public Health was a $50,000 fine for failing to follow a physician's order that resulted in the death of a resident in January 2019. 

Aperion Care was also fined $25,000 after staff failed to measure a patient's blood sugar, and the patient subsequently died from an insulin spike.
