A former Orland Park nursing home employee is suing her old employer, alleging she was wrongly fired for reporting to police in 2011 that a male co-worker sexually assaulted a 93-year-old patient.

Former night shift nursing supervisor Rosemary Braderic is seeking $30,000 compensation from Lexington Healthcare Center under Illinois’ whistle blower protection law, according to a suit filed Friday in Cook County Circuit Court.

Rape culture. Not only does no one care about rape, but you will get fired if you care about it.

Ageism and rape culture are inextricably linked. Just look at the way women in nursing homes are treated, ESPECIALLY if they have Alzheimer’s. And ESPECIALLY if a man with Alzheimer’s is the one assaulting them. Literally none of the staff at the nursing home will give a fuck.

Tell me again rape is about clothes or location & I’ll slap you.
