State Revokes License of Assisted Living Facility With Multiple Care Issues

Officials in one state have revoked the license of an assisted living facility accused of care and staffing deficiencies. In addition to the revocation of its license, the facility faces over $20,000 in fines. The facility houses young adults with disabilities including autism.

In addition to inadequate staffing levels, the facility failed to report injuries and allowed an employee with criminal charges of sexual battery at the facility to continue working. A staff member has also been accused of taking inappropriate photos of a resident. The order to close the nursing home came with orders that all residents be relocated within 30 days.
