A local nursing home is fighting back against the government. Blossom South Nursing and Rehabilitation Center filed a lawsuit against the state and federal governments Monday.
The lawsuit names the secretary for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the state health commissioners and others. It claims government officials are denying Blossom South due process by threatening to end Medicare funding without a full review.
Blossom South has been cited numerous times in recent years for issues with care and was recently warned that it was at risk of losing that Medicare money.
