State Takes Action on Local Nursing Home

A nursing home was fined and an employee fired after nursing home negligence. The nursing home admitted a quality of care violation and agreed to pay a $2,000 fine to settle a case related to an inspection of the facility and its records. The quality of care problem involved harm to a resident whose slow transit constipation was not well managed. The resident was hospitalized according to the inspection report. The inspection also cited other problems that didn’t result in actual harm such as treatment of pressure sores and toileting care. To read more about the nursing home fines, please click the link.
