More info: 

Illinois requires almost all people moving into nursing homes to have a criminal background check when they enter. If they have a serious criminal history, their records are sent to a State forensic psychologist who evaluates them and makes recommendations about if and how the person can be cared for safely in a nursing home. The nursing home staff must decide if it can comply with the psychologist's recommendations, and if they think that they need to do more to keep all residents, the staff, and visitors safe. If the staff thinks this is not possible, the nursing home must try to discharge the resident.
