Regulators have flagged over two dozen nursing homes and elder care facilities in the past year for bringing in new residents even when they were unable to meet mandated staffing requirements.
The Agency for Health Care Administration disclosed the regulatory actions amid a tussle with a Northwest Florida home that regulators tried to force into moving its residents out of the home due to staffing shortages.
The state alleges understaffing led residents to go days without being bathed. Hygiene, regulators allege, was so poor at the facility that a “dark brown substance” was found underneath every fingernail of one resident.
