Kipling Manor shuts down today
The Kipling Manor Assisted Living Facility in Pensacola must shut down by this afternoon.
A state investigation found several violations that put its residents' health and safety at risk. Kipling's 54 residents have been moved to other facilities licensed to handle mental health patients. Several state agencies helped them find new homes mostly in the Pensacola area.
"It's all said and done," said Mike Phillips with the Florida Ombudsman Program.
They are out of that facility and the risk that facility imposed on them and we're grateful for that."
The state ordered Kipling Manor to close because of violations that included altering medical records and failing to ensure that patients received their medications.
