A nursing home has closed its doors voluntarily after five months on a federal list that catalogues the worst nursing homes in America. The federal list contains nursing homes that have repeat violations and that routinely lag behind federal standards. This home had been on the list for five months and had a record of nursing home abuse and neglect. The original corporate owner of the nursing home transferred its interest to a new party before the nursing home ownership corporation’s creator plead guilty to tax evasion and conspiracy relating to his ownership of more than 70 nursing homes.
