Serious Citation Issued to North Idaho Nursing Facility
POST FALLS, Idaho (AP) — The state has issued its most serious citation against the skilled nursing portion of Life Care Center of Post Falls.
The Coeur d'Alene Press reports that the state is not releasing details about the circumstances that led to the "immediate jeopardy" citation. They say that should be available in about two weeks. Idaho health department spokesman Tom Shanahan tells the Press that no one died or is in danger, but says the citation could result in fines.
Shanahan says the state is working with the facility on a daily basis to fix the problem. He says this is the third immediate jeopardy citation issued this year. The designation is a situation in which immediate corrective action is required because the facility's noncompliance has caused injury, harm or impaired a resident.
