Beaumond, Texas, February 26, 2017 — A nursing home in Texas that’s been in operation since 2013 has been found to be in violation of federal law, after a federal judge ruled that the facility violated its contract with nursing homes and their families.
Agency officials said they were working with Beausoleil Regional Healthcare to determine whether the facility had been in violation for years, and that if so, it was not in violation because of a “miscommunication” that resulted in the facility’s contract being terminated.
Beaumont is one of two nursing homes in Texas under investigation by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Beausoleils nursing home is located at 4500 West 3rd Street in Beaumish, Texas.
The Texas Department of Health said in a statement to FoxNews.com that Beausoils contract with the state of Texas expired on February 16, 2017.
On March 2, 2017, OSHA issued an emergency order that said the facility “was not in compliance with the applicable requirements for operating a nursing home.”
OSHA said the nursing home violated the federal Nursing Home Construction Safety Standards.OSHA’s order said the Texas Department has been in contact with Beasoleil, and is reviewing their case and is evaluating all appropriate actions.
The agency said Beasoils facility will be shut down until further notice.
