Nursing Home Shut Down By State Due to Numerous Care Deficiencies

The State Department of Health and Human Services has ordered one nursing home to close over the weekend. Last month, a state audit found “serious deficiencies,” including failure to notify the attending physician about nine residents with issues including abnormal blood pressures, missed doses of medications, low heart rates, a choking incident and the refusal to take their medications.

Other incidents involve matters such as improper feeding techniques and removal of uneaten food. Most of the 30 residents at the facility have been moved into the care of their families or a nearby hospital. For more, read the story.

Robert W. Carter, Jr. is a Virginia attorney whose law practice is dedicated to protecting the rights of the victims of nursing home and assisted living neglect and abuse in Richmond, Roanoke, Norfolk, Lynchburg, Danville, Charlottesville, and across Virginia.
