Syracuse, N.Y. (AP) — A choking death has led to changes at a central New York nursing home.
The Loretto Cunningham skilled nursing facility was cited October 3 by the state health department for a violation that created "immediate jeopardy" of serious injury or death for residents.
Neither the nursing home nor the health department would detail how the resident died, including whether it involved eating or drinking.
But a nursing home spokeswoman says a "quality assurance plan" is now in place to make sure it doesn't happen again and state inspectors determined Sunday the violation has been corrected.
There are about 450 residents at the Syracuse facility.
