The Department of Social and Health Services has revoked the license of Lakeside Gardens AFH LLC, an adult family home in Olympia. The DSHS has also prevented any one new being admitted to the home reports The Olympian.
According to the report, the DSHS took these action because they felt that there was negligence which impacted the “safety and well-being” of the people that lived there. The DSHS felt that residents susceptible to repeated falls did not receive adequate care or fall prevention plans to keep it from happening. DSHS also noted that the home did not obtain emergency care for a person who had facial injuries after a fall.
The adult family home, licensed to Jennie Carkhuff, has 28 days to contest the DSHS’ actions. Current residents may choose to remain in the home.
