Three Nursing Homes Fined

Three Connecticut nursing homes have been fined more than $1,000 each in connection with incidents that left three residents suffering broken bones. The Fairview Healthcare Center of Greenwich was fined $1,300 on Aug. 8, according to a citation released by the state Department of Public Health. The citation states that a resident with multiple sclerosis fell out of a lift in June because nurses’ aides used a sling that was too large. The resident was treated at a hospital for a head injury, bruised hip and a broken collarbone, the citation states.
