A Florida nursing home to close due to mold problem
A Florida medical care facility that once treated thousands of nursing home residents and their families is closing because of mold.
The Oakview Nursing Home, in Orange County, is closing due to a mold problem that started in May, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
The hospital closed last year, citing mold issues that were detected during a routine cleaning of the building.
The hospital also lost more than $20,000, the Sentinel reported on Wednesday.
Oakview has been closed for three months, and the facility is in need of at least $100,000 in repair.
The Sentinel reported that the nursing home is not receiving government funding, which could help pay for the costs.
