LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - An official with a Lafayette group home said the company will appeal the state's recent decision to revoke its license.
Last week, the state cited at least 10 infractions in its decision to revoke the license of the Vermilion Group Home.
Collis Temple, executive director of The Harmony Center, which ran the home, called the state's decision "rash" and "unfortunate."
Temple told The Advocate The Harmony Center has overseen group homes for 30 years and has had a home in Lafayette for the past 16 to 17 years.
The infractions included a failure to provide timely and competent medical care, inadequate staffing and failure to keep the facility in good repair.
