From the Maryville Daily Times,

Investigators from the Tennessee Department of Health inspecting the site last month produced a 106-page report detailing instances in which the facility repeatedly had failed to implement basic safety measures against falling.

Asbury Place, a Maryville nursing home, has been fined $45,000 after regulators surveying the facility found it had violated standards for administration and basic services.

Asbury Place at Maryville, a 181-bed nursing home at 2648 Sevierville Road, has been prohibited from taking new residents effective Sept. 12.

From WBIR,
"The Commissioner of Health may suspend admissions to a nursing home when conditions are determined to be, or are likely to be, detrimental to the health, safety or welfare of the residents," the release said. "The order to suspend admissions remains effective until conditions have been and continue to remain corrected. A copy of the order must be posted at the public entrance where it can be plainly seen."

Asbury Place has been serving the elderly since 1956. They have been affiliated with Asbury Communities out of Frederick, MD, since 2016.
