ALF license revoked for violations and risk to residents
Michigan state health officials suspended an assisted living facility’s operating license for two of its four buildings Wednesday afternoon.
Ashley Court of Livonia in Livonia, Mich., failed to protect residents and properly maintain the premises, according to the order issued by a bureau of the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA).
“Due to the serious nature of the above violations and the potential risk they respresents (sic) to vulnerable adults in the (facility’s) care, emergency action is required,” the order says.
Relatives and caregivers told the Detroit Free Press about the eviction Wednesday afternoon. Residents had to be off the premises by 6 p.m. Wednesday.
Ashley Court has been issued a number of deficiencies in recent months.
- In December, a state fire marshal inspector cited the facility with 25 deficiencies.
- In March, a state fire marshal inspection found 13 deficiencies.
- In May, another inspection found 12 deficiencies.
The order also cited two incidents of resident falls, including one where staff falsified paperwork that it had checked on the resident.
