Nursing Homes Cited for Neglect and Care Deficiencies

Two nursing homes were cited for endangering patients according to a report by state investigators. The facilities were cited in connection with inspections between 2010 and 2012 by the State Department of Justice’s Operation Guardians.

The facilities were cited for deficiencies including permitting residents who lacked the mental capacity to make decisions to sign their own Physician Orders, failing to provide hospital care when one resident was suffering a problem with her feeding tube, failure to treat and prevent wounds, failure to note cases of dehydration despite available evidence. One resident was found to have maggots in an open wound, according to the report. For more, read the story.
