Tennessee Nursing Home Fined for Multiple Violations


Last month, Tennessee Health Commissioner John Dreyzehner suspended the admission of new residents to the Oakwood Community Living Center after it was deemed to have several violations.

According to a release by the agency, the 50-bed nursing home would not be able to take in new residents after poor conditions were discovered during an investigation. Investigators reportedly found violations at the facility in administration, performance, improvement and nursing services.

It should be noted that a common type of nursing home neglect that often results in civil fines is insufficient staffing. Residents who receive inadequate care can suffer from bedsores, slip and falls and mistakes in diets.
