The greater the monetary fine, the more serious the violation is that likely harmed or could have harmed one or more residents at the nursing home.
Over the last thirty-six months, federal investigators imposed a monetary fine of $2600 against La Villa Grande Care Center on September 29, 2016, citing substandard care. During that time, the nursing home also received three formally filed complaints that resulted in citations.
