Facility Ordered to Stop Admitting Residents Due To Care Concerns

The Department of Health has ordered one nursing home not to admit any more patients, until several problems have been corrected. Officials conducted a surprise inspection of the facility last week. Inspectors said they found several quality-of-care issues at the facility, including problems with pain management, fall prevention, and pressure ulcer prevention.

According to officials from the Department of Health, the facility had been under probation with the department, prior to this week's inspection. Now, health officials say, the facility will have ten days to come up with a plan to address the issues. A spokesman for the facility says they are working to resolve the issues.
