SHALLOTTE, NC (
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.
