Glendora Nursing Home Fined $100K Over Patient Death
The California Department of Public Health has issued a $100,000 fine to the Glendora Grand nursing home over a resident's death last year. The patient had problems swallowing and choked to death after eating food taken from another resident's tray. The nursing home has agreed to take corrective action, including full documentation of patients' food needs and coordinated supervision of patients during meals. Glendora Grand also received an AA citation -- the most harsh citation under state law.
