The investigation revealed biohazard bags on the floor in a trash packed utility room and dirty toilets and floors. The state had found the nursing home to be not compliant. The state believed that the records were not handled correctly and residents were not being fed on time. Also, the food wasn’t being stored properly and the medication cart was stored in the hallways. Nursing homes must remain clean and tidy in order to avoid nursing home negligence.
