Inside Chicago’s worst nursing home: bug bites, bruises and death
In a city with dozens of subpar nursing homes, Wentworth Rehab stands out as the worst, according to a Chicago Tribune review of evaluations by the federal government.
Inspectors have cited the home in recent years for chronic roach problems, poor food, untreated bedsores, and staff ignoring basic health and safety standards, resulting in broken bones and other harm.
You wouldn’t know that by looking at Wentworth’s website. The home page boasts that the facility receives a four-star quality rating from the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
But in truth, the agency gives the home an overall rating of one out of five stars, the lowest possible score.
