After numerous instances of resident assaults and other serious problems that have gone uncorrected, a Central Ohio nursing home is in the process of having its license revoked, according to the Columbus Dispatch.
Bon-Ing Care and Rehabilitation of Gahanna was found to have violations that posed “immediate jeopardy” and “real and present danger” to residents during four complaint investigations and one biannual inspection by state health officials from March 14 through August 11.
Inspectors found that the nursing home failed to adopt interventions that would prevent additional problems from occurring, and it didn’t have enough workers to handle problems when they arose, according to state inspection reports.
This is the third Central Ohio nursing home with serious trouble in the past year. Carlton Manor in Washington Court House closed in February after a series of failed inspections, and Autumn Health Care in Zanesville was shut down after authorities installed surveillance cameras in patients’ rooms following complaints about mistreatment.
“Good nursing homes can have problems,” said Beverly Laubert, the state’s long-term-care ombudsman, “but the difference is they analyze what’s gone wrong, find out why it has happened and put measures in to prevent further issues.” Read the full story here:
