NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee health officials have banned a nursing home from taking in new residents due to violations.

The state Department of Health says new admissions were cut off at Brookhaven Manor in Kingsport this week.

Issues were found at the 180-bed facility during an investigation from Nov. 1 through Dec. 7.

The problems dealt with administration, performance improvement, physician services, infection control, nursing services and resident rights.

Brookhaven Manor can ask for a hearing about the suspension before the Board for Licensing Health Care Facilities or an administrative judge.
