Iowa Veterans Home fined after death of resident
MARSHALLTOWN (AP) — The state-run Iowa Veterans Home in Marshalltown has been fined a third time in four months for not meeting care standards.
The federal government imposed a $250-per-day fine and extended restrictions on new admissions, which will remain in place until the facility can demonstrate that a series of problems have been corrected, The Des Moines Register reported Monday.
The most recent sanctions stem from the Sept. 13 death of a 91-year-old woman who fell when she was getting out of bed. The Department of Inspections and Appeals said Vivian Knoll suffered leg fractures, which were blamed for her death.
