The Nevada Bureau of Health Care and Compliance has suspended the license of Las Vegas Home Sweet Home nursing home after the facility was charged with physically abusing residents and stealing resident’s social security checks and other money.
Repeated non-compliance with regulations has led to the assisted living center being repeatedly fined in recent years.
Recent charges stem from an investigation that found that caregivers at the nursing home were depositing resident’s Social Security checks into their personal accounts and overcharging residents for groceries in order to steal the extra money.
Another episode of nursing home abuse at the facility involved an elderly woman dragged down the hall by her ankles after getting into a loud argument with a manager.
Residents have now been removed from the assisted living center and placed in other nursing homes.
