The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is working to revoke the license of an assisted living community in Tabor City, because of an “imminent danger to the health, safety and welfare of the residents."
The assisted living community's license to operate was ordered to be suspended on September 22nd or when the last of the 71 residents’ placement had been arranged.
Understand the Threat of Bed Bugs in Senior Living Communities
Relocation puts an emotional strain on senior living residents, who have built friendships within their community, and strips them of their familiar surroundings. Removing residents from the place they call home is extremely detrimental, but can be necessary if a bed bug infestation threatens their health and wellness.
It is the responsibility of each senior living community to be prepared for infestations and know how to manage the problem efficiently and effectively. Staff must have the tools needed to minimize the risk of a bed bug infestation and understand the necessary steps to take if your community encounters bed bugs.
