Facility receives temporary license

Posted: Friday, December 26, 2008

ANCHORAGE - The state has granted a temporary license to a long-term nursing home in Anchorage after the owner agreed to sell the embattled facility within 60 days.

State health officials took control of the Mary Conrad Center last week after an inspection found medication errors, residents with unattended injuries, unclean kitchens and other problems.

The state revoked the facility's license, saying it posed an "immediate danger to the health, safety or welfare" of about 90 residents.

The state announced Wednesday it has agreed to give the center a provisional license while the owner looks for buyers of the facility.

State workers have taken over as top management there.

The Cook Inlet Housing Authority sold the facility last year to RainDance Healthcare Corp., which is owned by Andrew Turner, who previously ran one of the country's largest nursing home chains.
