Specifically, the facility failed to give patients their medication on time, and did not have the proper number of trained nurses on duty.

Medicare has also responded to the care violations by cancelling their agreement with the facility. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid also issued an additional $4,500 fine against the facility. The health commissioners order to cease admissions will remain in affect until the facility corrects the care issues. For more, read the story.
