Nursing Home To Close Due To Loss Of License And Government Funding For Numerous Violations

A nursing home will close leaving 130 residents looking for a new facility. The home has been inspected over 13 visits. Findings concluded major safety violations for residents. One of the many concerns included housing 27 sex offenders.

The nursing home was cited for holding down residents, allowing sex offenders access to other patients, leading to incidents, and failing to report sexual abuse among others. The facility also had soiled floors, dirt-caked curtains and call lights that were not in working condition. The state is revoking its license and funding.  For more, read the story.
