State inspectors have fined a Centerville nursing home for the third time in the past seven months following the death of a resident.

Golden Age Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center was fined $15,000 for failing to accurately assess a resident and provide timely intervention.

The nursing home was cited for the same violation in June.

The owners of the nursing home, Patricia and Stanley Birchem of Leon, blame the old management company, which they say has since been replaced.
