SHALLOTTE, NC (StarNews) -- Shallotte Assisted Living has been fined $64,500 by the state for failing to protect residents from mental and physical abuse, and for failing to maintain rules about controlled substances and personal care and supervision.

The NC Division of Health Service Regulations, after its second inspection, found the facility failed to protect residents from verbal and physical assaults of an aggressive resident, and that the facility did not follow proper procedures for controlled substances, personal care and supervision, and health care.

The facility was assessed $16,000 for five penalties in August, and the additional penalties result from the state's findings that two violations were not abated within the 60-day compliance period. That resulted in daily fines totaling $64,500 for the facility.

ALL assisted living

ALL assisted living facilities should be inspected by the state as are nursing homes! They should also have to have a licensed nurse on duty 24 hours a day as do nursing homes!
