State Charges Woman Who was Running Care Homes Without a License

State officials discovered a  woman was operating two assisted living facilities without a license this week. The 53 year old woman was charged Wednesday by law enforcement officers with the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit with assistance from the County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators determined that the women did not possess any of the required licenses to operate her facility. The state issues licenses for compliance with various issues including compliance with county health and local fire authority regulations and the safe management of medication by trained staff. According to state officials, the woman was caring for six patients living at two separate single-family homes.

The Attorney General’s Office began its investigation into the homes last month.
State officials also charged the woman with the same offense nearly one year ago. The woman was first delivered a “notice of violation” letter to her for a facility she was running, ordering her to cease providing services there, the state said. However, she continued operating the nursing home and was charged. For more, read the story.
