Ashwood Assisted Living has license revoked; facility closed

Ashwood Assisted Living facility in Hampton has closed its doors. On Sept. 25, the Commissioner of the Virginia Department of Social Services issued a final ruling revoking its license to operate.

Its license expired more than a year ago in August 2012. Since then owner Scott Schuett had been following the lengthy appeals process to keep it in operation despite continued inspections showing numerous violations. Of six facilities he once operated in the region, only Chesapeake Home in Chesapeake remains open.

On Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2013, the facility was empty, its doors locked. All of its residents, who receive SSDI and auxiliary housing grants, have been relocated.

    Thank God these people are finally in a safe, clean, healthy place!This never needed to happen. The Licensing Division of the Virginia Department of Social Services has the authority to close these places with 15 days notice under the summary suspension procedure of Va. Code section 63.2-1709, with a maximum continuance of 10 days. It can cut off public funds to these places under Va. Code section 63.2-1709.2. Instead, it followed a cumbersome, year and a half procedure that led to more suffering and death. The two public guardianship programs, Jewish Family Service of Tidewater and Catholic Charities of Eastern Virginia, who dumped clients in these hellholes need to answer for their actions.

    Yes good news but the bad news is how long did this process take? And why did it takes so long? I have my opinions how the NH's get passes with the state regulators – $ and clout trumps following the laws.
