Good Samaritan Home Fined for Sexual Abuse by Former Chaplain
For the second time this year, a Quincy nursing home has been fined for violations cited by the Illinois Department of Public Health.
In a report issued Friday, IDPH reported that Good Samaritan Home has been fined $25,000 for failure to protect a resident from sexual abuse by a staff member and failure to implement its abuse policy to remove the alleged perpetrator from direct contact with residents.
The findings come as a result of the arrest of former chaplain James Riley in June after allegedly assaulting elderly patients.
Riley pleaded guilty to sexual abuse and sexual assault charges and was sentenced to 26 years in prison.
Good Samaritan had been fined $25,000 in July for failure to supervise and follow fall prevention care for a patient.
