Admissions Suspended At Madison Nursing Home

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – New admissions to a Madison nursing home were suspended Monday after it was cited for several violations.

Imperial Gardens Health and Rehabilitation also had a $5,000 state civil monetary penalty imposed on them by Tennessee Health Commissioner John Dreyzehner.

The facility, a 165-bed license nursing home on West Due West Avenue, was ordered not to admit any new residents based on conditions found during a complaint investigation from January 16 and February 15. During the inspection, surveyors found violations in administration, performance improvement, physician services, nursing services and laboratory services standards.

Those included not getting medication to patients on time, and not having enough trained nurses.

The facility also had its Medicare provider agreement terminated on Tuesday by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid. The facility has 30 days to assist with the transfer or relocation of its Medicare and Medicaid residents.

A special monitor will also be at the facility during the transition to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of residents.

CMS has imposed a federal civil monetary penalty of $4,500 per day effective August 7, 2012.

The nursing home has the right to a hearing regarding the suspension of admissions before the Board for Licensing Health Care Facilities or an administrative judge.

The Commissioner of Health may suspend admissions to a nursing home when conditions are determined to be, or are likely to be, detrimental to the health, safety or welfare of the residents. The order will remain in effect until conditions have been and continue to remain corrected. A copy of the order must be posted at the entrance of the facility.
