Officials Suspend License of Virginia Nursing Home Administrator Due to Care Violations

Officials have suspended the license of a man who oversees six assisted living facilities in Hampton Roads, Virginia. The Virginia Board of Long-Term Care Administrators suspended the administrator's license in September after the death of a resident at one of the facilities.

According to officials, the resident fell earlier this year and the center's staff did not seek medical treatment outside the facility. The resident was reportedly found unresponsive the following morning. In addition, the state lists more than twenty offenses, including bedbugs, poor supervision, and medications not being administered, as reasons for the suspension. One resident, who was to be limited to 2,000 calories a day, has gained 100 pounds while at the facility. Inspectors found problems at each of the facilities operated by the man.
