Houston nursing home with multiple violations changes name

Houston-based nursing facility Lexington Place Nursing and Rehabilitation, known for an incident in which two residents died and a poor track record of health and safety violations, changed its name to Brookhollow Heights Transitional Care Center, according to the Houston Chronicle.

In 2014, two residents were bludgeoned to death with a wheelchair armrest, allegedly by a fellow resident. Additionally, the nursing home’s health violations have been known to pose a serious risk to elderly residents.

According to Brookhollow Heights administrator Jesse Sias, the name change was intended to align the facility with the names of other establishments in the area.

The nursing home is northwest of downtown Houston between the Heights and U.S. 290.
