Maxwell Manor nursing home of Chicago has agreed to settle a False Claims Act suit alleging that they billed the government for inadequate or worthless services.
Abuse and neglect was said to be pervasive at the home, which was closed in June 2000 after inspectors found unsafe and unsanitary conditions.
Maxwell Manor will pay $1.9 million to settle the case.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported on the settlement on November 23, 2004.
