Nursing Home Closing After Failure to Correct Violations; 55 Residents Must Find New Homes

Nursing home residents at one facility were forced to find new homes after a nursing home closed its doors. The facility was cited for issues with the building late last year. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services gave the facility notice that if the problems were not corrected in 60 days, they would be forced to pull out all funding to the nursing home. 

When the facility did not correct the violations, federal officials ceased the flow of funding to the facility. The facility has now closed its doors, leaving 55 residents to find new homes. The facility's failure to correct the problems also caused 80 employees to lose their jobs. For more, read the story.
