Brenda Goarm with the Amie Holt Care Center reported the facility currently has 47 residents and has room only for one male patient. They have seven or eight females on a waiting list.
Two aides that had previously failed their C.N.A. Skills Tests have now passed them.
She said they have six nurses that will be retiring in the next few years and she is concerned because of a recent trend of few applicants in the field.
