Investigation Reveals that Nursing Home is Failing to Meet the Standards of Care

Facility staff and families of residents reported 25 cases of care concerns regarding a nursing home to the Federal Government. As a result, the facility was sanctioned after federal investigators found medication, pain and nutritional needs were not managed safely, and the comfort of and dignity of terminally ill residents was not maintained.

The facility will now be monitored daily until the issues are corrected. The facility had only just regained its aged-care accreditation nine months ago after failing to meet federal standards in 2009. Until the issues are resolved, the facility cannot accept new residents and cannot receive federal funding. For more, read the story.
