TOMAHAWK - We first told you about concerns about a nursing home operator in Tomahawk back in December. Now, we have new information on Golden Age in Tomahawk.
The state Department of Health and Human Services completed an investigation into the facility at the end of last month. The report became available to WJFW Thursday morning.
The 311-page report gives details into why the facility was cited for sub-standard quality of care.
Golden Age broke 21 federal nursing home rules.
The report states that nurses weren't keeping accurate records of bathroom breaks and showers for patients. Some of those patients went nearly three weeks without a shower or routine skin checks.
The state also found that at least two patients were physically restrained, which is illegal.
The facility serves patients with specific dementia care needs. Those responsible for that care were cited for not being focused enough on individual patient needs.Read More
