Nursing Home Death Sparks Investigation By Law Enforcement, State Health Department

After a nursing home resident’s death, there was interest in an investigation to review what the facility was doing wrong and what needed to change to better the facility. The police decided to investigate the death of the former resident and ten days later the state health department investigators ran a two-day investigation at the facility.

The nursing home serves 103 residents and is two years removed from an inspection that reported 53 deficiencies against them. One of the deficiencies was that the facility failed to hire staff under the requirement that they had no record of abusing, neglecting, or mistreating residents. For more, read the story.
