A Georgia nursing home company has been banned from doing business in Kansas for 10 years and fined $100,000 for failing to protect patient and employee records after the closure of Humboldt’s Pinecrest Nursing Home, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced Friday.

Allen County District Court Judge Daniel D. Creitz handed down the judgment last week against AltaCare Corporation, of Alpharetta, Ga.

The company also was ordered to properly destroy all Pinecrest Nursing Home records at the company’s expense by shredding, erasing, or otherwise modifying the personal information in the records.
