The state has decided that an assisted living facility in North Platte will remain on probation until mid-July.

The Hotel Pawnee had been put on probation in July because of 35 violations found in an inspection in May. The violations included not having enough certified staff at the facility, allowing uncertified employees to administer medications, unsafely preparing food and not properly maintaining the building.

The facility management challenged conclusions made after a follow-up inspection of the facility, and the state Health and Human Services Department heard the appeal in January.

The regulators noted progress that the facility was making in addressing the violations, but they said the probation will continue through July 17.

The facility can't admit any new clients until May 1.
