A Manlius nursing home has been fined by the state for failing to properly care for patients.
The Onondaga Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing must pay $22,000 following an inspection in February.
The center, formerly known as The Crossings, was found to be so short-staffed, some residents did not get insulin and other medications.
The facility was also cited for about 20 other problems, at least three of which resulted in harm to residents, including not getting proper care for bed sores and delays getting food.
The investigation determined there were only one to two aides at night to care for up to 40 residents. The facility was being run by an administrator who lived out of state and was unavailable on weekends.
In a statement, a spokesperson said, "When Centers Health Care acquired the former Capital Living facilities there were some anticipated personnel changes. That Director of Nursing has since been replaced...We have surrounded the Onondaga administrator with an extremely strong support team...to correct the issues that were noted in our February survey. Health care staffing is a crisis issue everywhere in New York State."
Officials at Onondaga Center say the state inspected their facility again, and found the issues were corrected and staffing levels are now sufficient.
