CHICAGO, IL – Shocking reports emerged yesterday that there were reports of no medical staff on duty at Warren Barr Lincolnshire, a skilled nursing facility licensed to house 144 beds at 150 Jamestown Lane earlier this week.

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) responded immediately to the home on Monday morning after receiving alerts that there was a lack of clinical care staff. Upon arrival, IDPH surveyors reported not a single nursing or clinical staff was present. 

“Our first priority was to ensure the care and well-being of all affected residents,” IDPH Director Dr. Sameer Vohra said. “A comprehensive review and investigation is underway. We are grateful for the swift response by local EMS and police officials in Lincolnshire, as well as our sister agency, the Illinois Department on Aging, all of whom assisted in responding to this urgent issue.”

With 104 residents in the home at the time, an investigation is now underway to determine whether the facility violated the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act. The license for the facility is in the name of Lincolnshire Living & Rehab Center, LLC.
