Background Checks for Illinois Nursing Home Residents
By: Wendy Ray
Nursing home residents and back ground checks don't seem to go hand in hand, but they do now in Illinois. All nursing home residents in the state are required to be checked against the State Department of Corrections and the sex offender websites. All background checks had to be completed by July 21st. A southern Illinois nursing home representative we spoke with Tuesday supports these background checks, and she isn't alone.
