The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services has revoked the license and ordered immediate closure of the Atishwin Institute, a substance abuse treatment group home at 937 S. Bluffview Drive, according to a news release.
During a site visit on Tuesday, the state found several regulatory violations, including non-compliance with the Alcohol or Other Drug Addiction Treatment Act, improper storage of drugs, treatment by unlicensed staff, insect and rodent infestations, broken mirrors and glass and disconnected fire alarms, according to the release.
State inspection staff also found that employees had not completed tuberculosis tests, no biohazard waste disposal was available, the facility had no way to maintain controlled medications, and there was no evidence of a current fire inspection, according to the release.
The licensee can have a hearing over the closure, but the request must be filed within 15 days or the order will become final.
Never miss a local story.
The facility has 35 beds and agency staff is helping about 25 residents find other accommodations, according to the release.
A call to the Atishwin Institute was not immediately returned.
