Illinois Officials Record Over a Dozen Deaths at Care Home for Disabled Children

, ,

Alden Village North is a nursing home facility that serves as a care home for physically and developmentally disabled children. According to Illinois state officials, multiple serious violations and at least 14 child deaths were recorded in connection to the nursing home between 2000 and 2010. The Chicago Tribune recently revealed five more cases of child death at the nursing home; even so, state officials with the Illinois Department of Public Health say the violations and citations stacking up at the care facility do not require it to be shut down. An attempt to revoke the facility’s state operating license in 2011 failed because Alden Village North argued the deaths of two boys were settled in a previous agreement.
