Iowa nursing home chief fined for incompetence

After failing to secure residents from two registered sex offender residents, a nursing home chief in Iowa was ordered to pay $500 fine by the Iowa Board of Nursing Home Administrators.

The Nursing Home Board found former Pomeroy Care Center Administrator, Susan Juilfs, guilty of professional incompetence after failing to protect residents from sex offenders, William Cubbage and John Steinkamp.

Juilfs served as Pomeroy’s administrator from 1983 to 2011. Aside from paying the fine, Juilfs was ordered to undergo 20 hours of continuing education, attend specialized staff training, and inform the board of future violations that occur within the nursing home.
