State fines Spirit Lake assisted living center

SPIRIT LAKE, Iowa (AP) — The state has fined an assisted living center in Spirit Lake, saying it presents an "imminent danger" to residents.

Keelson Harbour Assisted Living has been fined $3,000. The state says the center has not adequately trained workers, used nonmedical staffers to inject diabetic residents and borrowed medical supplies from residents to meet other residents' needs. The center has 68 residents.

Keelson Harbour is owned by Vista Prairie Communities in Minnesota. Patrick Rafferty is a Vista Prairie executive, and he says the Iowa inspectors' findings are being reviewed. He says a decision has not been made yet on whether Vista Prairie will appeal the fine.

Rafferty says that "if there are issues, they will be corrected."

The center's executive director declined to comment.
