Care facility denies charges by Des Moines-based Broadlawns Medical Center

DesMoinesRegister.com, December 31, 2009
Des Moines, IA-based Broadlawns Medical Center is suing Granger Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, contending the nursing home transferred a brain-damaged patient to Broadlawns in 2008, then broke state and federal regulations by refusing to take him back when he was medically stabilized. The patient died at the hospital after staying there more than six months. A lawyer for the nursing home said the hospital's claim is false.
