Abilene nursing home under fire after neglect report surfaces on website

ABILENE, Texas - A post by an advocacy group about an Abilene nursing home has gone viral.

The group cites a government report detailing neglect. 

Nursing Home Compare, which is a website set up by the U.S. Medicare Office to provide information on nursing homes, has included a report from March 2013 that focused on the Care Inn of Abilene on South 7th Street.

The Care Inn offers therapy, long-term care, hospice and respite care.

The report shows documentation of a resident going into septic shock from a catheter that reportedly wasn't properly cleaned or changed. 

Contacted Wednesday, officials with the Care Inn declined comment.

While we didn't get any answers from the facility, we were able to get graphic details about what allegedly happened in the report on the website.

The website allows you to view everything from state health inspections to reports from neglect investigations. In addition, the site grades each facility on the overall rating, health inspection, staffing and quality measures. You can even compare up to three facilities at a time to cross check their amenities and services.
