Report calls for changes in oversight, licensing at Lakeview
The Associated Press
CONCORD (AP) - Gov. Maggie Hassan says the state health department must take actions to improve oversight and licensing of a facility that treats people with brain injuries.
Lakeview NeuroRehabilitation Center in Effingham was the subject of complaints by the Disability Rights Center last year that included reports of residents left unattended and hurting each other and staff. The state Department of Health and Human Service released its own report last year calling for changes at Lakeview.
An independent investigation released Monday focuses on state oversight of the facility. It calls for a new licensing structure and continuing the freeze on admissions to Lakeview.
New Hampshire's education commissioner also ordered Lakeview to shut down its special education program and for school districts with students there to find alternative programs within 60 days.
