Washington County Home Cited, Fined
By Walter F. Roche Jr.
Tennessee health officials have ordered a Washington County nursing home to cease admitting any new patients after state inspectors found multiple violations at the facility.
The order and fines totaling $6,000 against the Family Ministries John M. Reed Center in Limestone were announced today by state Health Commissioner John Dreyzehner. The facility is licensed for 63 beds.
The commissioner said the violations were uncovered in three areas; nursing services, medical records and pharmaceutical services.
In addition he said a state monitor has been appointed to oversee operations at the home.
