Nursing Home Re-grade

The department of health and human services found nine problems at the Cornelia Nixon Davis Health Care Center worthy of citations. That's nearly twice the number the average nursing home receives. Officials there say they're addressing the problems. Two of the nine citations were serious. For example, inspectors say tap water at the home is too hot which makes it potentially dangerous for some of the residents. The other serious offense dealt with the quality of care. The report says the residents suffering from bed sores weren't properly rotated to allow their injuries to heal.

This Thursday state inspectors made another surprise inspection to the nursing home and found that it was in compliance with all state regulations.
