A Manchester care center plans to appeal a recent fine and citation handed down by the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals. The Good Neighbor Nursing Home was fined 44-hundred dollars for allegedly failing to maintain adequate safety standards for residents. Administrator Joy Mote blames the Des Moines register newspaper, for reporting on a state inspection into care at the facility:She says one article claimed no background checks were done. She says they were done but not completely because there were glitches in the system. Another report that an employee had a record of abuse is false, she says. Mote says other reports based on notes and incident reports gave a false impression. She says the home is a restraint-free facility, and can’t prevent every fall. Mote says the nursing home plans measures to clear up a bad image of the facility.She says the home will aggressively fight the label on the nursing home, and the fines and citations. Mote says it’s a good place that cares for residents, and deserves a chance to set the record straight.
