According to NBC news, the conditions discovered after surprise investigations in an Illinois nursing home were found to be not just disgusting, but deplorable. The state decided to conduct an investigation of one nursing home that yielded 37 pages of nursing home violations.
Reports revealed that patients within the home were left in soiled beds and that many linens were not only thin, but also stained brown. Many of the residents' hair were found to be greasy and unclean, too. Aside from neglecting patients, the nursing home was not administering medications correctly and medical records were kept in boxes that were soaked with water.
The facility housed 79 residents and employed 90 nursing home staff members. However, after the investigation concluded, the state shut the facility's doors due to the nursing home negligence that had been ongoing.
