Knowing' Mr. Edwards, it wouldn't surprise me if he targeted Mr. Johnson's homes for political reasons. He oversees the county health department. Were these inspections conducted by the state or local officials?

Even though Johnson’s Adult Homes had the highest number of reported violations of any facility in Chautauqua County, it also had the fewest number of residents. Both Johnson’s Adult Home and Southern Tier Meadows had only 24 beds. Southern Tier Meadows, however, had only 3 reported violations compared to 20 violations for Johnson’s Adult Home.

The largest adult home facility in Chautauqua County is Tanglewood Manor with 158 beds. Tanglewood Manor had only 1 violation since January 2012.

A list of all the adult care facilities in Chautauqua County, the number of beds at each facility, and the number of State Health Department violations since January 2012, is fully available in the attachment. The data is publicly available on the New York State Department of Health website at ***********health.ny.gov/facilities/adult_care/reports.htm.

Since January 2012, Johnson’s Adult Home has been cited 20 times for violating the rules and regulations of the State Health Department. This is the highest number of violations for any adult care facility in Chautauqua, and is 20% higher than the next worst facility.

The number of violations since January 2012 for the 13 adult care facilities in Chautauqua County averaged about 4.38 violations. Johnson’s Adult Homes had 450% more violations than the average adult home facility.

Two Chautauqua County adult care facilities—The Women’s Christian Association Home and Orchard Grove Residences—had no reported violations. Six other adult care facilities had only one reported violation: Bergqusit Adult Home, Frewsberg Rest Home for Adults, Hultquist Place, Memory Garden, St. Vincents Home for the Aged, and Tanglewood Manor.

Although County Executive candidate Ron Johnson has trumpeted his experience in operating adult care facilities, official New York State Health Department records show that his facility has the worst compliance record of any adult home facility in Chautauqua County.

Johnson’s Adult Home, owned and operated by Johnson, had more health violations since January 2012 than any other adult care facility in Chautauqua County, according to reports from the State Health Department.

Johnson’s Adult Home was cited for violating requirements related to administration, resident protections, resident rights, resident services, food service, environmental standards, records and reports, and admission and retention standards.
