Inspectors state that the South View Adult Care home, located in Puyallup, had clothing soaked in urine and that their facility stunk of pet waste. The adult home is home to several developmentally disabled men and 10 dogs as well. Owner Wendy Bell, is currently facing several fines due to the issues there but states that the state is making it all up.
Wendy said "A lot of it's garbage. It's little stuff." During last month's visit the inspectors reported that they found issues there with employees background checks, medication logs, billing issues and what they termed to be "potentially unsanitary conditions." Wendy has denied all of these claims and states that she had to put in new flooring, but "other than that, everything was okay."
The state inspectors reported that there is a "risk for diminished quality of life and potentially unsanitary conditions" because of "animal odors and waste," and pointed out wet urine stains on the carpeting. However Wendy states "I had it professional cleaned three different times." Inspectors also said that they found "urine soaked clothing" in one of the bedrooms. Wendy has also denied the issues in previous claims as well. There were similar claims of animal feces and urine in 2009 and 2011
Yet the Problem Solvers found state reports showing problems as early as 2009, with "animal urine and feces" concerns in 2011.
