Two licensing inspectors conducted an unannounced focused monitor inspection and looked at a self-reported medication error at Commonwealth Senior Living-Abingdon on 02/14/2019. The inspection started at 11:30 am and concluded at 12:00 pm. The purpose of this inspection was to determine compliance and correction of previously cited violations and to review the self-reported medication error. Staff records, resident records, and Medication Administration Records (MARs) were reviewed. As a result of this inspection, one violation is being cited. An exit meeting was conducted with facility representatives on 02/14/2019 and at that time the opportunity was given to find items that could not be located in files. Please provide a plan of correction and date to be corrected for each violation cited and return a signed and dated copy of the violation notice to your licensing inspector within 10 days (02/24/2019) of receipt. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your inspector at 276-608-1067. Thank you for your cooperation and assistance.

A compliance history is in no way a rating for a facility++.

The online compliance history includes only information after July 1, 2003. In addition, the online compliance history includes information regarding adverse actions that may be the subject of a pending appeal. An adverse action is not final until a provider has exhausted or waived all due process rights. For compliance history prior to July 1, 2003, or information regarding the status of pending adverse actions, please contact the Licensing Inspector listed in the facility's information. The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) is not responsible for any errors in or omissions from the compliance history information.
