21 News is following administrative hearings in Columbus involving three group homes in Trumbull County that are facing alleged violations from the state.In opening statements Tuesday, owner Eugenia Mihas' attorney admitted that his client, from a documentation standpoint, is not 100 percent compliant however the documentation is available and the documentation will show what he says is the employees working there should be working there and the residents who are living there should be residing there.Thomas Hess is representing the owner of Just Like Homes I, II and III, Eugenia Mihas.He argues that some family members will testify that they are pleased with the care for elderly loved ones at the homes.He went on to say, "I believe the testimony will show that my client does provide good services and that the services are appropriate, necessary and reasonable for the individuals residing in those facilities."These are separate group homes for individuals with disabilities that are next door to each other and owned by the same person that specifically house the elderlyAll three licenses are being discussed at the same time at the administrative hearings in Columbus.The state licensing agency, the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, has proposed to revoke their licenses.The state alleges Just Like Home II did not did not investigate or report to the state in a timely manner two allegations of physical and verbal abuse in January and February of 2017Other allegations from the state are that background checks were not completed and there was a lack of evidence of training for workers at all three homes in February, March and September of 2017. The state alleges a resident went without prescribed pain medication for 17 days because the owner, Eugenia Mihas, took the only key to the narcotics cabinet with her out of the country."The testimony will show that the individual was not harmed and in fact that individual's condition improved over the time in question," stated Hess.Former Just Like Home II and III manager Jacquelyn Mixon testified Tuesday on behalf of the state. She alleged medications were administered to residents by staff or family, which is not allowed in a group home setting.Mixon claimed that there were issues in February of 2017."How they were just pouring them into their mouths or altering or crushing the medication or not being given at the right time," she said.At these types of facilities, the state says that residents must be able to administer their own medicationsWorkers can remind residents or make sure that they follow directionsThere are some exceptions for residents who are mentally alert but physically disabled.She also claimed that there were generally circumstances or times staff were not providing care 24/7, which she said was needed because residents needed help with tasks such as going to the bathroom at night.Testimony is scheduled to continue Wednesday with cross examination of a state surveyor.  More From wfmj.comHot ClicksMore>> Trump calls sketch released by Daniels 'a total con job'Trump calls sketch released by Daniels 'a total con job'Updated: Thursday, April 19 2018
