Nursing Home With History Of Violations Changes Name

A nursing home with a history of repeat offenses in violation of safety and health codes has changed its name. The community is questioning the purpose of the name change. This comes from the most recent offense, where two patients were stabbed to death with a wheelchair armrest.

The nursing home released a statement when questioned about the connection of the name change to the double murder in the home the previous year, "it is only appropriate that the name of the facility reflects the roots and the identity of this area." Despite the name change, all employees, including the administrator, director of nursing, and medical director, have maintained their positions.  For more, read the story.
