Nursing Home Fined $76,000 by Department of Health For Care Deficiencies

State officials have fined a troubled nursing home $76,000 after health inspectors uncovered many serious care issues at the facility. The inspectors from the Department of Health found the deficiencies in early November during a facility inspection. Three care concerns put residents in "immediate jeopardy," according to officials. These are the most serious violations cited by the Department of Health.

The citations and fines stem from incidents involving lack of supervision and failure to follow appropriate administrative procedures. The same facility was found to have over 50 care deficiencies in the past three years. In addition to the care issues, the former owner of the facility recently filed bankruptcy, leaving the new owners to pay a large amount of back taxes. For more, read the story.
