PLACER COUNTY, CALIFORNIA – According to the California Department of Public Health, an administrative hearing is underway to revoke the license of Colonial Healthcare, a nursing home located in Auburn, California. The hearing was initiated after Colonial received a “AA” citation and $100,000 fine, the most severe penalty and highest fine under state law. The “AA” citation was the third issued to the facility since 2005. Under California law, two “AA” citations in less than 24 months triggers automatic action to revoke a facility’s license. In addition to the three “AA” citations, Colonial also received an “A” citation and eleven “B” citations in the same time period.
