At the insistence of her family, a 76 year old resident was transferred to a hospital on 3/4/07 due to a high fever and large swelling of her neck. These symptoms were caused by an infection resulting from varying levels of decayed teeth. She died 8 days later. The resident did not have a routine dental exam between admission on 8/18/05 and her hospital admission on 3/4/07. The facility was cited because it failed to provide routine dental care, which led to her death.
