Orlando Sentimental-January 21, 2009-Rachel Jackson-A Sanford assisted living facility was closed after the State of Florida revoked its license due to concerns about patient/resident treatment. According to the article staff members at the Lake Jessup retirement home yelled at residents. Apparently investigators were told that staff members had been seen slapping residents on the shoulder or hands. Apparently this same facility was cited by the state last year when a patient suffered bruises from what was thought to be a seizure or a stroke, but 911 was not called until the following day. Apparently, before the 14-bed facility can reopen its doors, its owners must pay $20,500 in fines and apply for a license.
