Brunswick Nursing Home Cited

State health officials have cited one of Brunswick's largest nursing homes for substandard care.

The Southeast Georgia Health System Senior Care Center was cited for numerous federal violations, including not addressing pressure sores, not monitoring bowel movements and managing residents' funds without their permission.

Jacqueline Weder is a spokesperson for the health system that runs the 124 resident home.

"We're making every effort to improve those areas," Weder says. "We look at the state coming in as an opportunity to make improvements and to exceed the expectations not only of our own operations but those of the residents and their families."

The state Department of Health and Human Services has proposed fines of $550 a day until violations are fixed.

It's been two years since the home was bought and renovated by Southeast Georgia Health.

The state shut it down under previous management for safety and financial issues
