   A metro-east nursing home will appeal a citation by the state license authority over it's handling of a resident who refused to submit to a fingerprint background check.

   The Illinois Department of Public Health Wednesday ruled that the staff at the Lebanon Care Center acted improperly when they left 56 year old Thomas Hearty sitting in his wheelchair outside the Flying J truck stop in Alorton.  

   Nursing home officials told the Belleville News-Democrat that they couldn't legally admit him without the background check and Hearty had asked them to take him to the truck stop because it was near a relative's home.  

   Hearty eventually agreed to the background check and was admitted to the Lebanon, Illinois nursing home.

   Petersen Health Care, which owns the nursing home, plans to appeal the health department's citation.

UPDATE: Missing metro-east man found safe

A good Samaritan is being credited with coming to the aid of a dementia patient who'd wandered away from a New Athens nursing home.

Eighty-four year old Arthur Crowl was discovered missing just after 7 a.m. Wednesday by staff at the New Athens Home for the Aged on South Johnson Street.

New Athens Detective Ray Wilson says Crowl had been wearing only pajamas when he was found walking along a side road just after 8 a.m. A motorist picked him up, took him to a nearby gas station and called authorities.

Detective Wilson says Crowl was taken to the hospital as a precaution, but seemed to be unharmed.
