Uptown nursing home faces closing

An Uptown nursing home is slated to be shuttered Friday, leaving 76 residents uncertain of their future home, WGN-TV News 9 reports.
Somerset Place is losing its public funding, and the Illinois State Health Department is revoking the nursing home’s license after inspections  found  abuse and mistreatment of residents, ChicagoBreakingNews reports.
Somerset was licensed to hold more than 400 residents, but over the last several weeks, most of the residents have been moved to other nursing homes,  state Department of Public Health assistant director Teresa Garate told ChicagoBreakingNews. “Everybody will be out Friday,” Garate said.
The federal Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services recently decertified the nursing home, and residents had 30 days to be relocated to other facilities, WGN-TV 9 reports.
