Colorado Springs Nursing Home License Suspended After Death

Colorado health officials have suspended the Union Printers Home license, forcing about 115 residents at the Colorado Springs nursing home and assisted living facility to relocate in the spring. The suspension came after recent revelation forced the Colorado Department of Health and Environment received a complaint about a female resident's death at the nursing home, 101 S. Union Blvd., last week, said Peter Myers, public information officer for the health department’s Health Facilities Division.

Both a nursing home and an assisted living residence located within the same facility are under investigation, Myers said. The decision to suspend operations was made after a "pattern of non-compliance," Myers said. "This action suspends the facility’s license."
