Nursing Home in Jeopardy After State Investigation Reveals Chronic Bad Performance

The Department of Health issued a final inspection report this week detailing findings of poor care at one nursing home. According to the report, investigators from the Health Department found that staff at the facility failed to answer nurses' call lights for 15 minutes, left residents in urine- and feces-soaked clothing, failed to provide an on-going program that meets the interests and well being of residents, and under and over medicated residents.

A representative from the Office of Health and Human Services, said the state will not tolerate nursing homes with such bad performance. There will be an administrative hearing later this month to determine whether the nursing home will lose its license. For more, read the story.
