Administrator of Nursing Home Placed on Probation for Failure to Report Care Issues

State officials have placed a nursing home administrator on two-years of probation, after two incidents involving resident health and safety. Regulators say one resident left the facility on two separate occasions. On one occasion, the patient wandered from the facility in November and had to be treated for hypothermia and frostbite after spending hours in the cold.

The facility was also reprimanded for not having a policy in place for resident-on-resident sexual abuse. Multiple residents at the facility were engaged in sexual behavior. The facility failed to report the above incidents to the state. The State Board of Nursing Home Administrator's issued the probation to the facility administrator. For more, read the story.
