The Maine Department of Health and Human Services is investigating a complaint about Saint Joseph’s Manor in Portland and plans to present its findings to the nursing home Wednesday.

Geoffrey Green, a deputy commissioner of operations, said the agency sent inspectors to the Portland nursing home last week. He would not provide any details about the complaint or about the findings.

“We have received a complaint about a situation in that facility and we sent inspectors to check it out,” he said. “A statement of deficiency is being completed and will be sent tomorrow.”

Once the state presents its findings, the nursing home will have 10 days to respond with a plan to correct any problems.

Had state inspectors found any unsafe conditions, those would already be resolved, Green said. “Any time an immediate jeopardy situation is identified … the facility is required to correct that immediately.”

The administrator of the nursing home was not available to comment Tuesday.
