Nursing Home Admissions Reinstated After $250,000 Fine

A nursing home has been reinstated to admit patients after being under a patient admission freeze. The nursing home facility allowed two patients to die and was fined $250,000. The facility was also cited for a lack of staff training on important care issues, such as life support care and empty oxygen-delivery machines, among others.

After two return surveys the nursing home facility was allowed to receive patients. It was also offered a 35 percent discount to agree not to appeal the fine. For more, read the story.
