Unlicensed Assited Living Facility Ordered to Cease and Desist

One state's attorney general's office issued a cease and desist order to an unlicensed assisted living facility Wednesday afternoon and has already begun transporting the patients to nearby facilities. According to investigators, the unlicensed facility was operating out of 3 houses.

The buildings did not meet fire codes and were declared a hazard by county fire code inspectors. After the cease and desist order, nurses evaluated nearly 20 patients, then turned them over to paramedics for transportation to another facility. The facility was licensed in 2009, but investigators say the owner let it, and the facility conditions, lapse. For more, read the story.
