McCook NE - Hillcrest Nursing Home will submit a "Plan of Correction" and provide weekly reports to the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services after being placed on a 90-day probationary period beginning Aug. 2.
DHHS informed the Red Willow County commissioners of the disciplinary action on July 21. Red Willow County owns the nursing home.
According to a letter to the commissioners, the basis for the disciplinary action is a deficiency "relating to the failure of the facility to protect residents from abuse."
