Nursing Home Care Deficiencies Jeopardize Facility's Reputation

Following an annual survey inspection, a nursing facility was found to have a few deficiencies that jeopardized their facility’s reputation. The violations started out with the facility not having a proper plan of care for multiple residents nor having a physician attend quarterly as required. The consequences for these deficiencies remaining over time led to a $300 per day fine, and the denial for Medicare or Medicaid admissions.

The owners of this facility are planning to rebuild an enhanced nursing home at the cost of 16 million dollars. The building completion is anticipated in 2016. Residents are worried about the new facility the owners are building because they are not sure their current facility will be maintained when the new building is finished. For more, read the story.
