Reader jojoakaoscar left a comment on the post "What Other Foundations are Related to the Glen Rose Medical Foundation/Medical Center? which says that in January 2008 the GRMC Nursing home was cited for 5 federal violations and 8 state (Texas) violations by DADS. Thank you for that, Jojoakaoscar. YOu're right!
I looked up the latter on the DADS website. The last time a state inspection was done, that is posted here, was a year ago on January 10, 2008.
Glen Rose Medical Center Nursing Home LLC had 5 deficiencies cited regarding federal standards.
|Severity of Deficiency|
Least=1 ... 4=Most
|01/10/2008||01/29/2008||The facility did not 1) hire only people who have no legal history of abusing, neglecting or mistreating residents; or 2) report and investigate any acts or reports of abuse, neglect or mistreatment of residents.|| Some||Minimal Harm or Potential for Actual Harm|
|01/10/2008||01/29/2008||The facility did not write and use policies that forbid mistreatment, neglect and abuse of residents and theft of residents' property.|| Some||Minimal Harm or Potential for Actual Harm|
|01/10/2008||01/29/2008||The facility did not make sure that private space is available in the nursing home for resident groups or residents' families to meet.|| Some||Potential for Minimal Harm|
|01/10/2008||01/29/2008||The facility did not 1) provide 3 meals daily at regular times; or 2) serve breakfast within 14 hours after dinner; or 3) offer a snack at bedtime each day.|| Some||Potential for Minimal Harm|

In addition, 8 violations of state standards were cited. Some of these violations may reflect deficiencies already stated as deficiencies.
|01/10/2008||01/29/2008||The facility failed to have to written rules against mistreating, neglecting, and abusing residents, and mishandling residents' property.|

|01/10/2008||01/11/2008||The facility failed to use electrical extension cords appropriately.|
There's also a note on the page of the change from Somervell County Health Care Authority (when, presumably, will have to check, Somervell County had charge of the nursing home, to when it was given over to Gary Marks-run GRMC Nursing Home LLC.
|10/01/2003||Change of Ownership||DADS approved a change of ownership from SOMERVELL COUNTY HEALTH CARE AUTHORITY to GLEN ROSE MEDICAL CENTER NURSING HOME LLC.|
and here's compliance history.
