Over the years, the Department of Social Services has found numerous violations including dirty bed and bath linens as well as failing to keep hazardous materials stored and locked away, like a saw, jagged blade and two joint knives.

The acting administrator was suspended, along with her license, in June. She is currently on probation.

NBC12 reached out to the property owner, who is different than the acting administrator, and is waiting to hear back about why it's up for sale now.
