In a case of nursing home abuse and neglect, the facility failed to prohibit food service and housekeeping employees from working while the employees experienced nausea, diarrhea and vomiting before and during a shift. This occurred during an outbreak of gastrointestinal illness that affected residents and staff at the facility. The facility also failed to take proper precaution to prevent the spread of the outbreak.
