Nursing Home to Close After Losing Federal Funding

One nursing home has agreed to shut its doors after years of deficient care and persistent quality problems that have not be fixed. The facility was required to file a closure plan last Friday. The78 residents at the facility will be moved to other nearby facilities.

The secretary of the department of state health and human services, said that the nursing home and the state agreed mutually to the closing. The facility was already cut-off from receiving payments from Medicaid and Medicare. For three years, the home has been repeatedly cited for care deficiencies ranging from failure to manage patients' medication to uncontrolled bed sores. For more, read the story.
