The Oklahoma Health Department has fined the Whispering Pines Nursing Center for multiple instances of nursing home abuse and neglect. Among the allegations, the nursing home was cited for:
- Forcing a patient into a shower while fully clothed
- Failing to investigate complaints of physical abuse among residents
- Failing to provide adequate training to nursing home staff
- Failing to provide condoms to sexually active HIV positive nursing home residents
The health department is recommending Whispering Pines immediately correct its dangerous conditions or the facility will not be permitted to accept new Medicare and Medicaid patients. Read more about this Oklahoma nursing home here.
