Syracuse, N.Y. – Workers at Rosewood Heights nursing home did not properly supervise residents at risk of choking on their food, putting them in danger of serious injury or death, according to a recent inspection of the facility at 614 S. Crouse Ave.

The 242-bed home was cited for 26 violations — three of them classified as “immediate jeopardy,” the most serious type of infraction – in a Dec. 7, 2012 inspection recently published by the state Health Department on its website.

Twelve of the 26 violations were repeat problems. The federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, CMS for short, has fined the home $10,000 because of the violations.
