"The Illinois Legislative Committee on Public Aid yesterday criticized the directors of three nursing home associations for failing to enforce standards in their industry, and charged that the director of one association had a "laissez-faire" attitude in permitting two of his officers to operate substandard homes for the elderly. . ."

The Tribune reports that Illinois State Legislators blame the directors of nursing home associations for allowing such substandard homes to remain open.
