LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) - State officials have banned a northern Idaho facility for troubled youth from accepting new admissions after an inspection found deficiencies.

The Lewiston Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1G7dLUk) that the ban imposed on the Northwest Children’s Home by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare started Wednesday.

Officials conducted the inspection following a complaint filed by the owners of a nearby duplex where authorities say a teen from the Lewiston facility broke into a house and struck the property owner in the back of the head with a 6-pound rock. The woman recovered.

Northwest Children’s Home Executive Director Rod Wilson says his clinical team is reviewing the report from the state agency.

He says he’s confident workers can come up with a plan to meet the state’s concerns.
