A boarding house was subject to a fine for providing services that could only be performed by a licensed personal care home.  During a site visit, the facility was found to have kept the residents’ medications in lockers, and investigators discovered that the facility’s owner had organized two of the residents’ medications for them.  Per the governing regulations, the appropriate fine against the facility was the number of days for which the state could establish that the facility was assisting the residents with their medications.
