Laurelbrook Nursing Home Admissions Suspension Lifted
NASHVILLE – The Tennessee Department of Health announces that the suspension of admissions at Laurelbrook Nursing Home has been lifted effective June 8, 2012. The facility is a 50-bed licensed nursing home located at 200 Sanitarium Circle in Dayton.
The department confirmed the facility has returned to substantial compliance for state licensing purposes. The federal conditions of participation that led to the immediate jeopardy citations have been corrected as stated in the facility's approved plan of correction, which was approved by federal and state authorities.
On May 24, the nursing home was ordered not to admit any new residents based on conditions found during a complaint investigation and annual survey conducted May 7 through 15, 2012. During the inspection, surveyors found violations of the following standards: administration, performance improvement, physician services, infection control, food and dietetic services and resident rights.
