Nursing Home Cited for Care Issues Has Two Months to Correct Deficiencies

State officials have told one nursing home hat they must make changes. The facility was cited after finding that staff were forgetting to give patients pain medication, failing to change the bedding of incontinent patients and not having enough hot water for patient showers.

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) said that the Nursing Home and Rehab Center has until February to correct the deficiencies. Otherwise, DHHS said it will recommend that the nursing home’s license be revoked. Patients at the facility said employees often brought in blankets from home to keep patients warm because the building was cold and there were no clean blankets. For more, read the story.
