NASHVILLE – The Tennessee Department of Health announces that the suspension of admissions at Caring Estates has been lifted effective March 19, 2013. The facility is an eight-bed home for the aged located at 4965 Brunswick Rd. in Arlington.

The state deficiencies that led to the suspension of admissions have been corrected as stated in the facility's approved plan of correction, which was approved and verified by state authorities.
On Jan. 16, the home for the aged was ordered not to admit any new residents based on conditions found during an annual survey and complaint investigation conducted Sept. 11, 2012 through Jan. 4, 2013. During the inspection, surveyors found violations of the following standards: licensing procedures, administration, admissions, discharges and transfers, personal services, building standards, life safety, records and reports, resident rights and disaster preparedness.
