The Arkansas Advocates for Nursing Home Care is outraged at both a long list of standard of care violations found at the state Department of Veterans Affairs nursing home in Fayetteville and also at the manager’s assertion to a newspaper that the violations were minor.
Poor wound care and pain management, lack of food, bedsore care, unclean catheters? Minor?
I guess that depends on who’s doing the administering and who’s doing the suffering.
News release follows.
A copy of a state inspection report.
The state also has a private-pay home for veterans in Little Rock. The advocates have been monitoring inspection reports there as well. For example, this report on care standards from September.
