One facility’s record of alleged violence
Chicago police responded to 34 reports alleging battery, assault or sexual violence from 2009 to 2011 at Rainbow Beach Care Center, while health inspectors cited other violence. “The facility vehemently denies any allegations of wrongdoing and is aggressively defending against” the state citations, said facility attorney Holly Turner.
March 2009 to January 2010: An “extremely violent” 54-year-old man repeatedly struck residents, breaking one woman’s nose and eyeglasses. Inspectors said the facility did not have a plan for dealing with his aggressive behavior.
August 2009 to January 2010: A 43-year-old male resident allegedly assaulted at least seven people in the facility, punching several in the face.
