The Ohio Department of Health shut down a nursing home in the northwest region of the state for serious violations after a months-long covert investigation, according to the Fayette Advocate.

Carlton Manor in Fayette failed to pay their employees for hours worked on two occasions in 2013, the same year in which the facility caught fire after a resident lit a bed on fire.

The facility was scheduled to lose their Medicare funding on Jan. 16 for failing to follow mandated Medicaid and Medicare participant requirements. The requirements allegedly violated include serious offenses against the quality of life, resident assessment, dietary services, infection control, administration, resident behavior, and admissions, transfer, and discharge.

A transition team made of several state agencies and facility staff will work to relocate residents to an appropriate setting of their choice. Read the full story here:
