The most significant care issue listed in the report was lack of supervision that led to a resident repeatedly suffering serious injuries from falls..

The report also describes verbal assault by employees and an incident where a resident was transferred to a different room when she complained that the staff wouldn’t give her neighbor a bath or change the neighbor’s clothing. Others findings said that officials there neglected to properly notify residents of inspection results and failed to ensure that some residents’ medical histories were kept private.
