Nursing Home Fined $144,000 For Neglect Of Patients

A nursing home inspection initiated due to a complaint received resulted in hefty fines to be paid by the facility. The nursing home inspection identified what was first noted as Immediate Jeopardy, but later downgraded. The fines were put in place at $216,000 with the option of a 35% decrease if the fines were not appealed.

The nursing home administrator opted for the reduced fine amount of $144,000 and decided not to appeal the counts of non-compliance. The fines were set by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid and held in place until the facility was deemed as back in compliance with the Center. For more, read the story.
