EFFINGHAM - New Hampshire health facilities conducted an investigation inside Lakeview Neurorehabilitation Center in Effingham.
The review found several issues with the building itself. Alarm systems were not up to code, and there were also sanitation issues.
The report found that Lakeview was not maintaining proper levels of supervision at all times. Patients were admitted with severe conditions that staff admitted they were not equipped to handle.
One in five employees said that the orientation for their job was "not satisfactory," and they were "not prepared to handle some clients."
Staff complained of not having competitive enough salaries, claiming that "local McDonalds pay more" - where an average shift manager makes $10.18.
The report concluded these issues attributed to "bad outcomes" for program residents.
The finding also state that Lakeview is required to submit an acceptable Plan of Correction to address the issues identified by Dec. 31.
Complaints against Lakeview were investigated in October.
