Nursing Homes Cited For Poor Care Issues

Two nursing homes are being pressured to improve based on deficiencies identified by federal nursing home agencies.  One inspection a facility in question noting, “the facility failed to ensure appropriate treatment and services to restore as much normal bladder function as possible” for residents experiencing bladder issues. The same nursing home was cited for 41 deficiencies due to mismanagement of residents’ funds and failure to treat and care for bed sores.

Another neighboring facility also received citations for failing to provide residents notice of roommates or room changes, as well as failing to store food in a clean and safe way.  The citation noted, “the facility failed to ensure the kitchen was kept and maintained in a sanitary manner to prevent the spread of harmful microorganisms.  A nursing home advocate states that, “this is also an example of what it looks like when you have an investment company that’s owning a nursing home; you see these types of egregious care.”  For more, read the story.
