Economy Inn Passes Yesterday’s Inspection
A follow-up inspection performed by the Department of Public Health and Wellness found that the Economy Inn has corrected all violations that were cited on the inspection that was conducted on October 5. The facility had failed that inspection with a score of 82. By state directive, the follow-up inspection was limited to those rooms inspected on October 5.
As a result of passing yesterday’s inspection the Economy Inn’s permit will not be suspended. A state hearing offer had recommended that if the facility passed yesterday’s inspection, it be allowed to retain its permit to operate.
While conducting the follow-up inspection inspectors also investigated a recent complaint on a separate vacant room. That investigation found broken tile and burn holes and stains on bedding. The Department of Public health and Wellness will return in 30 days to ensure that these issues have been corrected.
The Economy Inn has been placed indefinitely on a six-month, rather than twelve month, inspection interval due to its repeated history of failing regular inspections. A failure on any subsequent regular inspection will cause the Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness to seek revocation, rather than suspension, of the Economy Inn’s permit to operate.
