Court-appointed trustee takes over Amberwood Care Center

After an agency inspection found “squalid conditions” resulting in “grossly inadequate medical care,” the Texas court has appointed a trustee to take over operations at the Amberwood Care Center on Ohio Street in Celina, Texas. Hoping to rectify a nursing home that has suffered a “complete breakdown” and conditions that were “pretty horrific,” the trustee will be put in charge of the care for or transfer of Amberwood Care Center’s 42 residents. Among some of the inspections findings were multiple patients suffering from pressure ulcers, a trach tube “coated with crust,” and ventilators set at “dangerously high oxygen flow pressures.” The owner of the nursing home, James W. Jewel, was not available for comment.
