DEPLORABLE CONDITIONS AT OHIO NURSING HOME

Can you believe this report from Cincinnati, Ohio? Police Capt. Kimberly Frey found “fleas, flies and filth” at the nursing home and fellow officers agreed the conditions were worse than any crack house they had ever seen.

Officials served an administrative search warrant at the Westside Health Care Nursing Home and the Terrace Independent & Assisted Living last week and inspected the premises and interviewed residents. Between 50 and 70 people reside in the two facilities that occupy the same two-story brick building.

In addition to the filth, the findings included a fire door tied shut, the apparent accumulation of vomit in an entryway, smoking being permitted in areas where oxygen tanks were in use, a defective sprinkler system, defective downspouts, a cracked foundation, and missing railings on exterior stairs.

The owners of this facility should spend some time in jail!
