State Revokes License of Financially Defunct Nursing Home Preventing Sale of Facility

State officials have revoked the license of a nursing home which recently closed its doors. The facility was  cited for failing to follow proper procedures when it closed. The facility failed to properly notify the state and facility residents who were to be discharged. 

The facility does not plan to appeal the revocation. Because the facility had already shut down, the state action means that it cannot be sold in the future as a certified care facility without re-certification. The nursing home was forced to close its doors when it ran into financial difficulties. For more, read the story.
