Nursing Home Fined $20,000 For Care Violations

A nursing home has been fined $20,000 due to four different violations of care for residents in the facility. Each violation instigated a citation and a $5,000 fine. The ongoing consequences also involve suspension of admissions of other residents while the nursing home corrects the poor quality care.
