A nursing home in Colchester, Vermont, recently admitted to violating state law’s regarding reporting abuse and neglect.

Nursing Home Under Fire

Aside from the fine, the Green Mountain Nursing Home has agreed to be monitored at its own expense as part of the settlement reached with the state.

Wrongful Death Not Reported

According to reports, employees at the home also failed to report the untimely death of one of their residents to the Medical Examiner’s Office.

The death reportedly happened after another resident repeatedly assaulted the victim.
