Nursing Home Re-opens

by Jessica Cervantez

Nursing home residents are welcomed back as the Pinecrest Nursing Home re-opened in Nacogdoches.

The nursing home administrator had fired med-aides and gave the responsibility to hand out medicines solely to nurses. The nurses quit and the nursing home had to close.

Mike Drewery, the administrator, realized this was a mistake and offered the med-aides their jobs back and the home is now re-open.

The home opened back up on February 25th. It serves about 56 residents and their families.
