A Stamford nursing home has been fined $5,160 in connection with its handling of emergency procedures when a resident died in January. And a Shelton nursing home was fined $3,000 in connection with a resident who died Jan. 22 without CPR being initiated. On Feb. 22, the state Department of Public Health (DPH) fined Long Ridge Post-Acute Care in Stamford $3,000 in connection with a resident who died on Jan.
A Shelton nursing home owned by Brian Foley – who was sentenced to three months in a halfway house in January in a campaign corruption scandal – has been fined $5,000 for lapses in care and ordered to hire a nursing consultant. On Feb. 5, Foley, the CEO of Apple Rehabilitation, signed a consent order with the state Department of Public Health in which he agreed to the fine and monitoring by the state to correct multiple violations at Apple Rehab Shelton Lakes. The action by DPH, which was posted on its website Tuesday, is unrelated to the scandal that ensnared Foley, his wife, Lisa Wilson-Foley, and former Gov. John G. Rowland. In unannounced inspections between June 4 and June 11, 2014, DPH found lapses in care that involved residents at the home who fell, lost weight, became dehydrated or were neglected, the consent order states.
