Fresno Facility Ordered Shut-Down Over Horrible Conditions

Wish-I-Ah Skilled Nursing and Wellness Center, a nursing home in Auberry (Fresno County) was ordered shut-down by the state Department of Public Health after an investigation revealed terrible care and crumbling facilities. Among the worst examples:

one resident was transferred to the hospital and died after poor wound care left her septic. A sponge from her wound vacuum dressing had been left in her wound and was growing in her skin;

a staff person worked while infectious with nausea and diarrhea and apparently passed it to multiple residents who became sick. Multiple infection control violations were observed;

toilets were overflowing;

there were cracked, broken, and uneven tiles in the floor of the shower room.
