CRESTVIEW — Silvercrest Manor Nursing Home faces a fine and a state-mandated probation for failing to report allegations of abuse and to implement procedures to prevent abuse.

The Agency for Health Care Administration has determined that three of 60 clients at the nursing home at 910 Brookmeade Drive were not “free of verbal or physical abuse,” according to a proposed settlement agreement filed May 10.

Multiple staff members were made aware of “intentional rudeness, refusal of care and services, and rough physical treatment of residents,” but failed to take appropriate action, according to the document.

Silvercrest Manor faces a fine of $13,500.

The nursing home has 30 days to appeal the findings, according to Health Care Administration official Richard Saliba, who could not comment specifically on the findings.

State officials found one Class 1 violation and one Class 2 violation during an inspection conducted in late 2012.
