TENESSEE NURSING HOME BARRED FROM ADMITTING NEW RESIDENTS
Nashville’s city-owned Bordeaux nursing home is being fined and stripped of its ability to accept new patients because of violations uncovered by state inspectors.
This is not the first time that Bordeaux has had problems. The U.S. Department of Justice began looking into the nursing home in March 2003, following state reports that found serious problems with patient care. The federal government found that Bordeaux was violating its patients’ rights under the federal Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act and threatened the nursing home with a lawsuit if it didn’t fix the problems.
