Nashville nursing home fined nearly $240,000

A Nashville nursing home has been fined nearly $240,000 in the past year as a result of violations of state and federal regulations that placed patients in “immediate jeopardy.”
The citations, one on May 12 for $231,972 and the other on Dec. 6 for $8,000, came after surveyors from the state Health Department inspected Crestview Health and Rehabilitation Center.
Shelley Walker, spokeswoman for the state agency, said the May citation had been paid but the $8,000 citation was still pending.
Robert Jordan, spokesman for Vanguard Healthcare, which owns Crestview, said all the nursing home deficiencies have been corrected and new management put in place at the nursing home.
