Chicago: Nursing Home Refused Patient, AIDS Group Says

January 24, 2003

The AIDS Legal Council of Chicago has filed a federal discrimination complaint against a Chicago Ridge nursing home, charging it refused to admit a patient because he had AIDS. The complaint, filed with the Office for Civil Rights, alleges the director of admissions for the Lexington Health Care nursing home told a social worker at Northwestern Memorial Hospital on Dec. 17 that the nursing home staff is not trained to deal with AIDS patients and would not accept the admission. Administrators at Lexington Health Care could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
