As we discussed recently, it can be difficult to know if a loved one is receiving proper care at a North Carolina nursing facility. Recent headlines add to that uncertainty.
In November, the North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulations fined an assisted living facility in Shallotte $64,000 for failing to remedy serious deficiencies reported by inspectors and residents.

While the executive director of the facility, David Goldston, called the investigations a waste of taxpayer money, inspectors said they found the following conditions on the premises:
Because earlier violations were not remedied, fines for the facility were increased to $64,000, according to the state. Commenting on the fine, Goldston said his business would appeal the fine, a process that could take several years, adding, “That's why we have good attorneys.”
