The Department of Community Health properly fined a personal care home $25,000 for repeat violations of capacity and level-of-care license and rule violations. The fact that the personal care home had a pending application for an increase in capacity did not justify admitting more residents than allowed under its current license. In fact, the failure to comply with the current license authorized the denial of the pending application for increased capacity.
