State Seeks to Revoke Assisted Living Facilitie's License

The Department of Health in one state is seeking to revoke the license of an assisted living facility, alleging it has failed to meet the standards of care and jeopardized the welfare of its residents. Two recent inspections at the facility revealed more than a dozen violations, four of which involved a male resident who later died in his room, according to state inspectors.

The company that owns the facility brought in new leadership to the facility to address the state’s allegations. The health department’s Division of Long Term Care has also alleged the facility is housing residents who are too disabled for an assisted living home. A male resident who died in April 2010, for example, was not medically stable and needed constant supervision, which according to state surveyors was not being provided.
