Ohio Toledo, OH - A nursing home has agreed to pay a fine of about $60,000 and correct problems found by the state following the death of a patient who was beaten with a bathroom towel bar. Correcting the problems means the Foundation Park Care Center can receive payments for new patients under the Medicare and Medicaid government health insurance programs. The Ohio Department of Health recommended the nursing home lose those payments in May after filing an inspection report that said the man accused in the death hit two other residents in January and February.... The nursing home did not tell police or the health department about the attack even though it was required to.
