An elder care facility in Arlington, Tennessee, has been ordered to stop accepting new patients after employees hid an unreported resident in a storage closet, The Tennessean reports. The incident happened when police and state health inspectors were investigating a complaint about the care of an unreported patient at the Caring Estates long-term care facility on Sept. 18. An administrator for Caring Estates said that the woman “was not a resident” and would occasionally come for daytime care only. The home can continue to operate with its current residents under the oversight of a state-appointed monitor.
