Officials to close Abbeville nursing home

ABBEVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Abbeville Healthcare and Rehab will close in about a month.  

Reports from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services show during a visit a year ago, staff told inspectors they hadn't had central air or heat in about a year.    

A water heater was broken. Some rooms were dirty and bathrooms had a strong odor of urine.

Inspectors say the staff also failed to report a fight between residents.

We have links to the full reports.

The nursing home and family members are now searching for new places to stay for the 100 residents.
