Admissions suspended by state for Maryville nursing home
Admissions to a Maryville nursing home have been suspended.
The suspension stems from conditions found during a complaint survey conducted August 13-20, 2018. During the investigation, surveyors found violations within administration and basic services.
Tennessee Health Commissioner John Dreyzehner has suspended new admissions of residents to Asbury Place at Maryville. In addition, Dreyzehner has imposed nine state monetary penalties in the amount of $5,000 each for a total assessment of $45,000.
A special monitor has been appointed to review the facility’s operations.
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 suspension remains in effect until conditions improve and or are corrected. A copy of the order must be posted at the public entrance where it can be plainly seen.
