BRISTOL NURSING HOME
BRISTOL, Tenn. -

The Bristol Nursing Home, which is facing suspensions, is fighting against those citations.

The facility's new admissions were suspended by the State of Tennessee, which cited several issues following an inspection which ended April 31. Those included everything from patient care to record-keeping problems.

Right after that, the government's Medicare and Medicaid agency informed the facility it was stopping funding for its patients there because of those issues.

Now Bristol Nursing Home is appealing the funding cuts by Medicaid-Medicare.

So far it has not appealed the state's ban on any new admissions.
