Smith: Nursing home initiatives pay off

Alderman Mary Ann Smith’s office reports in her e-Newsletter that progress is being made on her efforts to improve conditions in neighborhood nursing homes. Smith played an integral part in pushing the City Council Committee on Health to hold their first hearing into the situation. In addition, a special audit and inspection was conducted by investigators from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services at Somerset place (5000 N Sheridan) in Uptown. The result of the inspection were numerous fines and a threat to shut down the facility if the owners do not quickly remedy safety breaches.
